The makeshift campground at the base of Observatory was occupied by less than intelligent members of our species in that they decided to start target practice while we were down range. A whistle blow later and they did not start up again until we were safely on the ridge line.
"Are no bonus points for activating under fire!"
I do not think we were in any danger but it was just nerve rattling. Lynn really had to push to get beyond this but she did so with great determination.
They did a final empty of their weapons and left before we started to activate. "Idiots" is really the only word I can use to describe people that destroy the area they are enjoying and ruining it for everyone else. I like to shoot as much as anyone as my collection of gold cup match .45s and .22s indicate but I would rather do it responsibly, on a range.
Enough about that. Here are more pictures and less words.
