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.
