High on Life

Sunday Drives are the best!

And the trip to the Mt. Wilson Observatory is fantastic. 

Less than 45 minutes from the city and you are high in the mountains overlooking the San Gabriel Valley.

I took a tour led by a CalTech Professor.  I didn't understand all of it -- but the parts I got were most interesting.

The Mt. Wilson Observatory was responsible for some of the most important astrological discoveries in the first half of the 20th Century.  Even Albert Einstein visited there and they have the picture to prove it.

Relatively speaking, it makes for a perfect Sunday outing.
