I thought in my head.
There were hundreds of people here. Normally this place sees 10 cars at most at any given time. Its a neat place and its outside and the weather is nice but I thought given how remote it is and what a pain it is to get to that we wouldn’t have to deal with crowds. NOPE!
here it is for reference. To give you an idea of how remote...its 10 miles down a dirt road, 10 miles away from the nearest facility which is the promentory test range where they test fire rockets. A facility necessarily far far away from people.
Speaking of rockets, our first stop on this adventure was Northrup Grumman’s (formerly ATK, Formerly Thiokol, formerly hercules) rocket garden.
Then we had a picnic there, see?
Check out that social distancing!
Turns out rockets are big. This is an aft section of a SSMB (Space Shuttle Main Booster)
An entire SSMB is in the background and it’s SO much bigger than it looks in pictures. is big boi.
Yeah, rockets are big.
Here is another picture of the booster with mini Slim Pickins in the foreground
After the rockets we went to see if the golden spike national recreation area was open.
Still pretty and neat.
Off to the world’s most crowded middle of nowhere road.
Really pretty place.
Kids had a great time. Video here
