enjoy! we were there on a Sunday, thankful there was a lady cleaning (they gate was open) and we told her we were only in the area for a bit, we could not wait around til it did open to the public, it was like 8ish or almost 9 am, it doesn't open on Sunday until noon i believe?? so we walked around real quick, took some pics and hope maybe one day again we will be in the area when they are in fact open and we see or hear a real tour. have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon.

(i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.
