    Great view sites there.

    Here is mine with google maps:View Location Home.jpg
    This is from my house. South and East are nice and dark. The rest has some LP, but not as bad as the cities. Looking for a nice close, easy site in the desert that is not a restricted area (diamonds), that has firm sand.

    I'm very fortunate to be able to observe from my semi-rural home located in western New York. It's on the highest ridge in my county (1640') with an fairly unobstructed 360º FOV. However, there is a light pollution "dome" towards the north. I observe and image from my roof-top, ROR observatory located over my attached garage.

    Panoramic view from the observatory:
