I had never seen that many stars. It was gorgeous beyond belief. The drive is very long but so worth it. It really, really is an incredible view that stays with you. No photograph could really do justice to inspiration of this place. It is very calming and brings your issues into perspective :) I actually got to see the milky way and more stars than you can possibly name in a lifetime. Not Kidding!
As a side note: I was worried that since the observatory is setup there specifically to avoid light pollution that the drive in a mountain / hill area in the middle of the night would be very dangerous but the highway is very properly marked with dozens of reflectors at every curve so you never feel like you are in danger of loosing control or sight of the highway. (Which does happen when you are driving in a very dark area)
