This weekend I’ll be heading down to the Trinity Test site, where the first atomic bomb was tested at 5:29:45 a.m. Mountain War Time on July 16, 1945. Apparently it’s only open to the public two times a year – the first saturday in April (YAY) and the first saturday in October. I’ll then be driving down to check out White Sands. Then, instead of going through the nine hells that would be presented by driving in and out of Mexico to get to Carlsbad Caverns, I’ll be going back north, then over to Roswell, then down to Carlsbad. I am HUGELY EXCITED about getting to check out the Trinity Test site. It is serendipitous that I’m here when it’s open to the public.
