Saturday, December 4, there will be a public star party in Wickenburg. The location is new--Sophie's Flat trailhead. Directions? Take Constellation road beyond the rodeo grounds to the "Y". Take the left fork 1.4 miles to the trailhead. Distance beyond the rodeo grounds-3.5 miles. The first mile is paved. The balance is well graded. Directional signs will be up by afternoon. There is a NEW, BLM outhouse on site!!

My weekend ended up getting filled up with prescheduled stuff (and the bones are still recovering from the unseasonably cold weather - what a wimp!) so I can't make it this time but hope to get out there next time.

For the folks that make it; how about a report back on it? :jump:

Hi Ron,
Unfortunately, the clouds were relentless. Sky was 0 out of 10. We'll try again in ~30 days. Look for a posting. Happy Holidays to All!

See if you can give us a week or two heads up so I don't forget and schedule something else. :jump:
