Quote:I go all the way to the East on Speedway, towards the Rincon Mountains. It is called the Douglas Springs Trailhead. Good dark sky site. Pretty well traveled road. NO facilities, but plenty of bushes. LOL It is my regular dark sky site.

Quote:Well I was just heading out to do some pics again, then this huge centipede slithers into my room....I cut it in half with the chair and is still running around :-S it was about 3 inches long! Then I make it out onto my patio and see this spider, redlight to white, I know what that red marking is on the belly. I call the front desk and they told me to leave it alone, they would send someone up. They send two guys, one to kill it an another to call 911 if he gets bit.The two guys then proceed to tell me about some pigs with tusks and an attitude on the property,
