Hi! I am planning our trip to Colorado next summer (end of June). I have two daughters - 13 and 16 - who would like to do a stargazing program. We will NOT be able to do the star gazing at the Gunnison Valley Observatory. Their 2012 dates are posted and they do not correspond to when we would be there (June 20).
I keep reading about the National Park Service at Gunnison has programs, but the dates aren't published yet. Do they tend to be every night? Any help would be appreciated!
We are also going to Ouray and Mesa Verde -- if you know of any programs in those areas it would also be very helpful! We are by no means experts (I can usually find the Big Dipper!), but the girls have been studying it in school and I think it would be a fun experience to have an "expert" explain things to us.
