Time to leave Houston (and that horrible heat + humidity combination) and head home via Colorado. But along the way, it’s comforting to stop and see some old friends.
Fletcher really enjoyed our time in Roswell. And not just because he loved the International UFO Museum Research Center so much. There were thousands of new sights and smells to explore!
We spent some time wandering among the proud pines of Ruidoso.
Known mostly as a mountain resort and ski town, hiking in Ruidoso was full of lovely rolling alpine vistas.
But the scenery quickly changed as we headed north.
After spending the night in Cortez, CO we were treated to this stunning sunrise.
And soon we entered into the region surrounding Moab.
Dramatic views at every bend in the road.
But where we’re going, we don’t need roads…
Today Fletcher took me to the International UFO Museum Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico. It was a real eye-opener.
Fletcher started by showing me the type of communication and surveillance equipment that was available to the US Air Force in 1947.
After sharing evidence from the crash site, he went on to detail the extent of the government cover up.
For Fletcher, the alien autopsy is clearly one of the most convincing pieces of evidence.
According the Mr. F, this display is quite accurate.
Even so, I remained skeptical.
At any rate, we both enjoyed the alien landing recreation.
And Fletcher REALLY enjoyed the research library. He asked me to read numerous direct sources to him aloud. It was slightly embarrassing, but then, he had some trouble holding the folios.
Afterward, Fletcher asked to do some shopping at the local alien shops.
I’m still not convinced, but it’s clear that Fletcher is a TRUE BELIEVER.
The trip home was filled with excitement. (Thanks, New Mexico!)
And did you know about Diesel Exhaust Fluid? Well, don’t let it get low…
Moab is high on the “camp here, now!” list.
Actually, the entire southwest is on that list.
