JR Hehnly and I took a trip out for the Trinity Site open house, leaving after work Friday and driving to Santa Rosa. On Saturday we hit up the Trinity Site open house (be there early!) and then headed over to the Very Large Array/VLA before ending in Albuquerque for the night. Sunday included a trip up to Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, and Valles Caldera National Preserve. Both very beautiful parks!
