It’s a blast. 😉
The Trinity Test Site, where the first atomic bomb test was carried out, is only open to the public two days a year–and one of those is the first Saturday in October. So if all goes well I should be there. (I don’t have the faintest clue where it is or how to get there, but I’ll figure it out before then.)
In the meantime, Alamogordo might be a very small town, but it does have a few cool things to see–a zoo, the nearby White Sands national park, and a space museum.
Some photos from Alamogordo:
The view from my “backyard”. The White Sands Missile Range is over the mountains.
Hot air balloons in the morning
A very active (and very noisy) bird in the parking lot. Looks sorta like a Grackle, but doesn’t sound like one.
