Heading Up!

The road to the top of the mountain was really bumpy most of the way. It took almost half an hour (30 minutes) to get to the Gemini Observatory. Just a little ways before (see the logo above). We reached the summit, the road was paved. Can you guess why?
It keeps the dust down so the astronomers have a clearer view of the sky at night.
Anyone in good health, over 16, and not pregnant, can visit there. Just make sure you have the right kind of car to drive up; four-wheel drive only.
