Did a weekend trip to New Mexico where we met up with some family from Colorado... visited The Trinity Site -- only open two weekends a year... great opportunity to see a bit of history... and a trip to another place on my Life List, The Very Large Array. Fascinating. Interesting and wonderfully scenic. Altogether a wonderful weekend with the DH and a favorite sister and her DH... relaxed and intellectually stimulating... We were absolutely thrilled to learn that our tour guide through the VLA site and control center was an astronomer who was involved with the first proof that quasars actually existed and weren't just theoretical. Too cool. His knowledge and enthusiasm was contagious and uplifting. HIGHLY recommend both sites (although Trinity is not open again until April.)
