A stunning view across the landscape of West Virginia and something seems just a little incongruous. Like something out of a Thunderbirds episode the National Radio Astronomy Observatory appears as if from nowhere. It was placed in the mountains to ensure the best reception of outer space radio signals. Amazingly, the size of the dish is larger than a football feed and the telescope is taller than the Statue of Liberty.

Kiva at Bandelier Natl. Monument- NM. The climb up to this Kiva is an adventure. In places the well-worn path in the rock has about a 6x4 inch ledge between you and the valley floor.
