50 yrs living in NM, finally went to see ground zero. Not much there, really. But, it certainly is hallowed ground. Our world Was forever changed by events at that site and i am glad I showed my children. There were peaceful protesters outside the gate with signs indicating they were made ill for generations d/t living downwind of the... 更多
Don't miss the chance to stand in awe at the melted and twisted steel tower that held the first thermonuclear device high in the air to be detonated. Take time to read the explanation panels....look at the sample of sand turned to glass by the fire ball. Marvel at the bulbous shape of the first test item. Then leave the... 更多
This was a once in a lifetime experience, and worth the amount of time it takes to get from the main highway (traffic), to the actual site, unfortunately the day (which are limited) that we choose to go, the farmhouse was not available for a tour, but the rest of the area was open. Be prepared to walk a lot,... 更多

The Trinity site is located south of Socorro on the White Sands Missile Range and is only open to visits in April and October each year. The actual explosion site is surrounded by chain link fencing. You can still see the depression left by the explosion. Don't even think about picking up of any of the trinitite, the sand-fused glass... 更多
This site is only opened 1 or 2 times a year as it is on an army base. However, historically it is very important. This was the place where the world changed forever.
This is a weird place to visit, but worth it because it raises your awareness of what happened here at the end of WWII. There's kind of a freaky energy about the place, as if the ramifications of what that first blast left behind. I think it's an important place to visit as long as you're in New Mexico.
