While on my way to Capitan, NM to view Smokey Bear's grave I passed several historical markers. It was this one that caught my eye.

I was not aware I was so close to this historical sight. From what I have been able to find out, the Trinity sight IS open only twice a year, once in April [I will be on vacation so I cannot visit then] and once in October. On the visit you are taken to ground zero. That's right, the actual spot where the first Atomic Bomb was dropped.
I have to do this!! Even if it means I will come away 'glowing'.
