The super 8 was a reasonable hotel to stay at. It had a small closet off the lobby that had a washer and dryer for guests which was most appreciated. Each machine cost $1 to use which was very reasonable. The room also included a cold breakfast (cereal, toast, juice, coffee) and some fruit which was of poor quality. And, they had a waffle maker and syrup which is one of my all time favorites. There was a restaurant across the street that served a buffet for supper.

... telescope to radio interference of any kind. Because of that, there is a ban on the use of all sorts of things -- including digital cameras, anywhere near the telescopes AND a complete ban on cell phone use -- and towers -- in the whole valley! Thus no cell phone service! I don't feel so bad now that I know it's for a good reason!
Walt would have to fill in the details, because I didn't take notes, but this telescope weighs 17 MILLION pounds. I think the ...
... br> We couldn't see the train, but we could still hear it, and thought it was coming our way. Then the sounds got fainter and then stopped. Then we heard a whistle and more train sounds, so we waited, but they stopped again. We decided to wait five more minutes, and our patience paid off. The train eventually came around the bend, and we got some more pictures.
Back to the station for lunch and shots of the next train leaving. Then we headed back ...
