Our visit to Area 51 in Rachel - Nevada by: Robert Swetz
When growing up I was always interested in Sci-fi movies stories, etc. I watched Star Trek when I was young, X-Files and many other movies. Movies like Contact with Jody Foster, Alien - Aliens, Communion with Christopher Walken and my favorite (Fire in the Sky) which was based on actual events.
If you have never seen Fire in the Sky and you like Science Fiction this movie is great. The event took place in Snow Flake Arizona and it helped to make me a believer, (not a good movie for children)!
The crash in Roswell story goes that in 1948 a UFO crashed in Roswell New Mexico, but it was really in Corona New Mexico which is approx 45 minutes NW of Roswell. The deb-re from the crash & body's were taken to Roswell and then brought to a area in the Midwest and or Area 51.
The government tried to cover up the story by stating that it was a hot air balloon, but was it? No one really knows the facts and answers and if anyone does, they are frightened to come forth.
This photo above is as far as we got to Area 51. There is a place where you can take a 4x4 vehicle and drive for 3 hours and then hike for another 2 hours that will give you a view of Area 51. Once you reach this top of the mountain you would need telephoto equipment to get a good view.
Above is another photograph of just one of the many gates that keep people from entering Area 51.
The photo above was taken from a small travel guide for Nevada.
The photo above was taken from a map of a very small area of Area 51 with Restricted Zone Boundaries.
The photo above was taken from a small book on Area 51, (Note) the writing about the "Black Mail Box" that has been painted White. There have been more sightings of UFO activity than anywhere in the world.
The photo above was taken at the very "Famous" (Little A'LE'INN in Rachel Nevada) and I will be posted a full blog on this Restaurant - Bar - Motel. We met the owner and will be staying at the Motel over Memorial Weekend.
