Santa Cruz Astronomy Club at Pinnacles West
« on: October 15, 2017, 11:03:53 PM »
Some SCAC members will be going to Pinnacles West, in the parking lot by the visitors center, on Saturday the 21st.     

day use fees (or national park pass) apply, and you must arrive before sunset as the gate auto locks, although it allows exiting all night long.

If anyone wants to join us, feel free, there's lots of room.    it might rain wed/thur but by saturday should be dry.

That gate at the Pinnacles swings shut at 8 pm, rather than sunset.

It's at Dinosaur Point that you have to be there by sunset.
