Dark Skies in Tonopah

The June issue of Sky and Tel has an ad that caught my eye. It's an ad for dark skies available at Tonopah, Nevada. It's sponsored by the Nevada bureau of tourism and the website is: www.tonopahstartrails.com
Check-out the website as it's a good one and send kudos to the contact link for sponsoring the dark-sky effort. The dark sky site is located midway between Las Vegas and Reno at the intersection of Highways 95 and 6.
I've got to get ahold of Floyd Blue and his crew and they can ride shotgun on our way up there!

Yes, the area above Bishop is very dark. All the way to Nevada it is pretty much dark skies.
