Trinity Site open-house out & about

  • Oct 6, 2012 · 7:00 AM

Both WSMR's Trinity Site and the NRAO's Very Large Array (VLA) open house are on Saturday, Oct 6.

Several people wanted to see the Trinity Site, perhaps the VLA if time permits, and perhaps the Valley of Fires (lava rock field) outside Carrizozo if time permits.

Entry is free at the Trinity Site and VLA; I believe the Valley of Fires is $3, but federal passes are accepted. Please remember to bring photo ID.

Leaving from Las Cruces K-Mart (North Main and Del-Rey, towards the Shell) at 7 am.

Hiking mileage is minimal. Perhaps 0.5 mi at the Trinity Site, no hiking at the VLA, and maybe 1 mi at the Valley of Fires.

    Too bad we ran out of time to go see VLA. Maybe next time. The Green Chili cheese burgers at the Owl were good though.
