I took a wonderful couple from England on a tour this past Wednesday (12-30-09). There were quite a few more cars in the parking lot at the Sheriff's Annex in Alamo. I counted 14 cars and trucks where the Area 51 workers park to catch the bus. Once we got to the Groom Lake Road warning signs, it was easy to see they had newly paved the part of Groom Lake Road past the signs. We witnessed the "cammo dudes" speeding down "cammo hill" and turning onto the newly paved road towards the guardshack. Everything else on the tour was the same as usual. The weather continues to offer beautiful sights with all the fresh snow! This is definitely my favorite time to visit the area.
