(meteorobs) Stargazing at State/National Parks out west

Here's a plug for Crater Lake NP.

For you: 8000 ft elevations and (almost) always clear skies. Even with an 
occasional fire, they don't send up much smoke at night. They have a 
recently remodeled lodge, but get your reservation in early.

For the family: Nearby rafting and hiking, spectacular scenery and even 
world class theaters and restaurants in nearby Ashland, OR. And the coast is 
just a few hours away. I'd fly into Portland, head to Crater Lake and come 
back via the coast.
