New Mexico: Roswell

So a couple weekends ago (I know all of my posts have been starting like this haha, I'm trying to catch up!!) we took a weekend trip down to Carlsbad Caverns, a national park with an incredible cave you can hike inside. On the way there we passed through Roswell, NM which is the town famous for all of it's alien sightings. We decided if we were going to be there, we might as well stop and enjoy the quirky town! I mean, if we were already there, why would we pass it by?

Honestly, it was actually a fairly big city (compared to the miles and miles of nothing we drove through to get there). The funny thing about it was the aliens everywhere! Every gas station had an alien statue outside, and the lamp posts on the streets were all topped with alien faces. They definitely embrace their history! We decided to stop by the International UFO museum. It was a little creepy, but also pretty interesting.

 The interesting parts were the galleries that had tons of actual news articles from back when all the alien sightings happened. A ton of them have quotes from government and military officials confirming that there WERE aliens, and then a week or so later they would go back on everything they said and just say they didn't know what happened. So what do you think? Are we really alone here in this great big universe?? (twilight zone music)

Mia knows, but she won't tell.
