VERY BAD EXPERIENCE.View original

Observation is luck, but the cost is not too high and I feel good to support what is there to do.View original
The desert views over there are beautiful! There are two different deserts, a red one and a Grey one. Be sure to visit both! The formations of the decomposing sandstone are impressive. I recommend to start to hike early or after 4pm because it gets very hot early
Serene desert great for exploring, stargazing, and simply enjoying it's beauty. Photographers will love it here.
Feels like out of the world. The maze provides a nice walk. Should be very nice for nocturnal views too.
Not much known. But here is a real desert, and friendly (& cheap) guides will guide you through
Smit Leonardo bobadilla medinaIt is a very nice and interesting place for astronomy work. However, try to stay in a place that is not the astronomical Center, is a place where he cares only that you pay for using a terrain that is public, the bathrooms are very dirty, the place for bathing very unhealthy, and a great congestion of people which makes it uncomfortable, it is better to walk two minutes and there are several places more where leave you camp with bathroom , shower and with roof in case it rains not flooding tentsView original
