    And so did you! I tried to catch a Southern car on the bus tour but I only captured 2/3's of it in the shot. Did you happen to go back to the tower for their special late night viewing?

    I decided to go back for the special late night viewing of the yard from the tower. I am not the best night photographer but I went ahead and took a few photos.
