Is there fresh water available at Green River so I can fill my travel trailers tanks there?

Friday night the skies where good. Thursday and Saturday the skies where mediocre due to the smoke and haze from the wildfires. Still anything up high near zenith was visible. We where able to observe all three nights, plus most of the week leading up to the star party.

What was your headcount.  I will put it on the "2020 Star Parties with known cancellations" thread.  Note, a few, like yours, did not cancel.

There was 20 people in attendance. There where a couple more people that where there with me earlier in the week that left before the star party.

They work around Covid restrictions by refunding part of the fee and have everyone register and pay for their own camping individually.
