Haven't seen any OIs posted for Montebello in a long time.  Is it being used?  Folks still going up on Wednesdays?

I went last Thursday. A nice thick fog covered the valley so conditions were respectably dark for a site 30 minutes away. There was another car that came in, but I didn't see them setup any scopes and they left after half an hour.

Unfortunately optics were dewing quite heavily from after dark until around 11pm.

I hope to see more people go. Where does everyone go nowadays?

you didn't close/lock the gate behind you?

I think each club has their own viewing locations.

I locked it, but the other visitor also had the code. They drove by around 9pm, unlocked the gate, parked there for half an hour and sat there quietly and then left and relocked the gate....

I plan to be at Montebello tomorrow night. Hopefully someone can join. The nights there have been dark as the fog covers the valley.
