The Truth is OUT THERE!!

Is it a sin to nap even when you are not feeling too bad? Actually feeling quite well? I've been such a hard worker get up and go type my whole life I never nap without feeling guilty!  I just had a check on the Rio Grande Birding Facebook page and MAN seeing all those warblers make me want to catch a plane and just go back! Missed soooo much, but happy with what I did see!!  They have been helpful with helping me on some of the ID of a few birds...I have made some corrections to my sightings, but nothing majorly offending and no change in life list count they all count 1 no matter if you don't know what you saw!  Still a few are up in the air...Leaving Dog Canyon, I wanted to stay longer!  But I pulled out early Sunday morning with new friends waving "bye" as I headed on down the road...On the way out I stopped to see a couple of scaled quail run across the road. and hide behind some scrub.  

 
A really lovely ground bird that I had been hearing!  I pulled over for this red-tailed hawk too...


                      Very precariously perched on this narrow fence post...then off I went North..in search of the Aliens!! 


                                HEY there they are now.... greeting me as I arrive...



Roswell, NM is the Alien capitol of the World!  They claim that the army covered up a flying saucer crash here back in 1947.  Of course the whole thing was covered up with a weather balloon story.  To get to the bottom of  it I went first to the Visitors Center.  



Where they gave me some info on what to look for...the Art Museum was not open till 3 hrs later, got the scoop on a State Park, a Wildlife Refuge, and more. My first stop was to the International UFO Museum and Research Center, after posing with little green men...


Who have very big heads and feet and were completely nude!  


This museum has all sorts of stuff inside including a real life research center chock full of UFO materials!!  It's $5 to get in and they had a PENNY TURNER!  I was thrilled.  


it was sitting right next to this Really cool Steam Punked Alien Life Form Incubator


very creative...


You either believe or you don't...I believe.  There is a movie shown of witness accounts of the events of that time...all these people couldn't have made this stuff up! And if it was a weather balloon, then why did they need the services of a coroner? They shipped pieces of the wreckage with airmen guarding it...so why the secrecy if it was only a weather balloon, if DT sees the report maybe he will blurt it out on Twitter!


Dogs are welcome inside the building! And each time this Alien Spaceship landed, the dogs barked at it...so funny!  But this I find serious....there was a display about the Palenque Astronaut.  If you have seen Ancient Aliens you know about this found in Myan Temples in Mexico.  It is a very detailed relief of a man riding a very alien looking craft...there is a copy of the relief here in the museum. 


if you rotate the relief you can clearly see he is riding on something like a motorcycle, he is using his left hand for some sort of control, as well as he is adjusting some controls with this right hand and he is using some type of device at his nose possibly for breathing? Here I rotated it for you to study...I find it fascinating!!  He is located in the center yet the entire relief seems to be machinery of some type...now I don't know what history books you read but the ones I read did not mention people of the 600 AD era as having any type machinery!! SO what gives?

 


there is alot of unexplained...


I also enjoyed the exhibits of Alien Themed Art that is all around in the Museum.   This was one of my favs...


and outside I found some cool murals 




The day grew hot so I found a theater outside of town behind the mall, well Wilma found it but I kept going in circles...I could not find the theater.  I parked and went inside the mall, no theater...asked the security guy he said its behind the mall...OOOhhhhh Okay Wilma sorry I called  you a stupid clueless machine. 

inside the ufo museum

I wanted to see Guardians of the Galaxy II but it was sold out..I stood inside the door and watch the last 30 mins of it.  I think it was probably a fun movie I didn't even see Galaxy I will have to see if it's on DVD I don't have a DVD player since I blew mine up last fall while charging it with the 12 volt.  Anyways I bought a ticket for "the Circle" Tom Hanks   It was also a science fiction but I could surely see this happening in our society TODAY...I did enjoy the film...but what really impressed me was this:  I do not as a rule go to movies...when I lived in NYC I used to go every single week.  Because I lived in a tiny studio apt. no work to be done could clean it in like 15 mins, no yard to tend, and I had no cable tv so I went to movies. 


Since I've moved back to SC I bet I've been in the theater 4 times...Anyways so I was surprised they have assigned seating!  You can pick your seat from a screen they turn around you hit it with your finger....amazing right?  Then when I went in I was the first ticket sold so he put me right smack in the middle of the theater...the best seat in the house.  And much to my surprise, each and every seat is a full recliner with a remote on the arm rest, your feet go up your head leans back and there is still room for people to get past your feet without you having to move....Although the movie was good I had a hard time staying awake!!


After the movie I drove about 10 miles out of town to the Bottomless Lakes State Park for camping. Notice the street light in the above photo...lol


PEACE

  1. Here I am....finally! Looks like a fun spot to take a touristy break! I've never been to New Mexico. When I moved to Tx, I thought it would be fun having new state neighbors....but then I bought my first home, a fixer upper, and I was too busy to venture off! So, NM is still on my wish list. XO

    1. Well next time you're in TX you should do a road trip! NM has a lot to offer, I had bigger plans to explore it but my late start date made it impossible this time. I still have many hot spots from NM on my wish/bucket list.

    1. I always seem to be in a Natural History museum so this was a great distraction for me. I do believe!

  3. Great post Sondra. The alien museum looks a great place to visit. I think I could spend a few hours there.

    1. Keith, I know you would enjoy all these mysteries, and lots of facts have been verified also. And the other visitors were such "COOL" people! I mean they went into the gift shop bought their t-shirts and put them on right then and there! I loved that unabashed excitement.

  4. I thought you might call in at Roswell, I know I would have.Its so intriguing and many happenings cant be explained. I have read about the Mayan link to Alien visitors before and how they depicted spaceships and unexplained visitors. You never know!!!!

    2. I have an old t-shirt from Roswell that I got in a second hand store, and I've wanted to stop there all this time. I have been very interested in the Ancient Alien Theory put out there by Mr von Daniken, and you're right there is just way too much unexplained by our normal methods!! Like the Nazca Lines there is no way it could sense other than from the air!!

    1. It was a fun little stretch right in the old downtown area, I did not make it to the Art Museum, it was about 1/2 mile down they opened late since it was Sunday, so there's more for me to see there If I ever make it back to Roswell. OH and by the way did I mention it's the birth place of John Denver? His father was a air force pilot and he was stationed in Roswell when John was born. Huge fan of his work.

    2. It definitely does look fun. I don't know a lot about John Denver, if he was hugely popular in the UK or not?

  6. I read all your trip posts that I missed and enjoyed all the places we haven't been, but came back to Roswell to say thanks for sharing the whole trip . We really enjoyed Roswell -- a mix of laughing our heads off and then wondering and thinking "well, maybe ..." It was a great time.

    Last weekend when we were in Colorado our 'kids' took us to see Wonder Woman and she had to buy the tickets in advance over internet -- you couldn't even purchase a ticket at the door. Theater had all reclining seats! (It was a good movie, one proof being that Bill stayed awake for the whole thing, even in a recliner!)
