McDonald staff members
The annual run
I just wanted to throw this story out there and it is not some spectacular tale of stars and galaxies far, far away. it is about a group of guys that makes a short little motorcycle run from the Waco and Temple areas of Texas to the observatory each year.
T-Bone, Mace, Quagmire, and Johnnykat ride out to West Texas each year to sleep in tents, see the sights and enjoy what mother nature has to offer. Along with our ride comes a visit to McDonald Observatory each year. It is a great ride to the top and pictures are taken of the same things each year and it always seems new. We were lucky enough to meet a great guy one year that allowed us to actually see the inside. AMAZING! We may not be astronomers, but we are still amazed by the size and capability of each of these 'scopes. This stop is on our list again this year. Terlingua4 ...
