After a good night’s sleep at Cannon AFB, it was time to head southwest to the alien capital of the world, Roswell, New Mexico.
It is famous for being the location of an alleged UFO crash in 1947 that was hidden by the US government. To this day,
there are many people who still believe the crash actually happened and that we still have the UFO evidence hidden away.
Lesser known is the fact that Roswell was the center of Robert Goddard’s rocket experiments in the 1930s.
One of the displays shows a tomb-lid from 400-600AD with Alien/UFO references. Hmmm…
After picking up a few souvenirs at the gift shop, it was time to rejoin civilization and continue westward.
