    I went last year and thought they were doing some really interesting stuff up there. Plus you get up in the white mountains and can go exploring, maybe cruise up to bristlecones.

    Actually it is really neat and interesting. We went up there years ago when it first opened. I took some really spectacular pictures. Hec now that I have a higher resolution one I should go back on Sat.
