Apparently UFOs, ghosts, interdimensional entities, and cryptids have all been seen in the area at one time or another thanks to the rift. There are local tours to these 'vortex' zones and nightly UFO tours. All I've ever witnessed there were gorgeous sunsets, incredible starry nights, and amazing local geography.
I know of Tom Dongo and interested reader of his work. There is a semi military interest in the area because of local bases and the "wrinkle" in the space-time.

He mentions the military connection in his books. I have two of his books that I'll give you if you need them. The first is Unseen Beings Unseen Worlds, and the second is Mysterious Sedona.

Thank you very much for the offer. At some point in the future I will take it up.The military would be interested in controlling these corridors. I think that Tom has mentioned that beings from other dimensions has "slipped in" and he has the photo evidence. Would it be great to step into one of those "cooridors" to other dimensions. But you better land in a civilization that has the technology to bring you home.

But what world you are really entering? Different worlds have had taken different evolutionary paths. Would enter a dimension that is "pure chaos" like in "Event Horizon" or a world where humanity has bombed itself back to the stone age?

Enjoyable time in Roswell and bought loads of alien souvenirs (snow globes, rock from the crash site and more T shirts) - the Museum was very interesting with a wealth of information - although to be honest, their gift shop was not as well stocked as the many other alien souvenir shops located nearby.

Also we were unable to find any details of anyone offering crash site tours - which is surely an opportunity missed for tourism revenue at Roswell ?

However, through research on the internet, we were able to locate and photograph the entrance sign to the Corn ranch (one of the supposed crash site areas), and also drove to near the Ragsdale crash site, and to the Hanger area at the airfield to the south of Roswell.

Off to the Alamogordo Space Museum and IMAX cinema today.

I am glad that you are having a good time. I am not sure if there are still tours to the "Trinity" site. Visitors can enter through the range's Stallion Range Center which is five miles south of Highway 380. The turnoff is 12 miles east of San Antonio, N.M. , and 53 miles west of Carrizozo, N.M. The Stallion gate will be open 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visitors arriving at the gate between those hours will receive handouts and will be allowed to drive unescorted the 17 miles to Trinity Site. The road is paved and marked

After I visited Roswell in 2005 I continued south to Carlsbad Caverns. Utterly amazing! Spent a whole day underground, and watched the bats leave in the evening.

(I saw the UFO museum in Roswell, but must confess I don't believe in that stuff at all... interesting as a social phenomenon, though, and fun, if not taken too seriously)

Thanks for the tip - we booked a night at Sedona near the end of our holiday and looked up Tom Dongo on the web who very kindly gave us an early morning tour of the local Airport vortex and Cathedral Rock vortex. Unfortunately we did not feel any 'vortex experience' as such, but would be interested to hear from anyone who has been affected at these vortexes.

Also checked out 'Ye Olde UFO Shop' at Sedona the evening before and went on an interesting night time UFO Sky watch tour arranged by the Shop and saw a few strange moving lights that we were assured by our guide were not satellites or aircraft. The tour also included a free T-Shirt 'I survived the Sedona UFO Hunting Tour'. Anyone else done the tour and seen any UFO's ?

Almost did that visit - but had seen a horror film called 'Bats' recently - so chickened out of doing that particular tour !

I see...

Well, around half a million Mexican free-tailed bats spiralled out overhead in the evening, so it's understandable someone with a temporary case of "batophobia" (is it chiropterophobia?) would steer clear of that place.

For me it was heaven, however. As is doing long road trips in the US, actually. Can hardly imagine a better vacation. So much to see, so many friendly people. Hope you had a splendid time!

Yes - it was a great holiday - did around 3,500 miles over 3 weeks.
Great country, friendly people, good customer service - highlights were definately Area 51, Roswell and Sedona.

PS I am now hooked on waffles for breakfast - and am very tempted to buy a waffle maker machine back in the UK !

Fortunately I was in the USA at the right time 2 years ago so was able to visit the Trinity site then in April (I think that it is only open to the public twice a year - once in April and once in October) - well worth a visit and you get a free info booklet, but it was a bit bizarre seeing burgers and 'Ground Zero' T-Shirts being sold near the location !

A colleague went to White Sands on official duty. Whilstthere, he was able to pay a quick visit to the site. He brought back a few samples: A dead tarantula and a few pieces of Trinitite - the glassy residue of the desert sand, turned to glass by the heat of the explosion

What a great souvenir - pieces of Trinitite - wish I'd thought of that when I was there.

On the subject of rocks, at one of the souvenir shops in Roswell I did buy a piece of rock said to have been from the supposed Corn ranch UFO crash site, although of course it's difficult to tell if it is 100 % genuine.

Interesting. The DOE was to have picked it up.Trinitite is measurably radioactive, but not dangerously so.
