Keeping up with interest in the location of the first atomic bomb test, the White Sands Missile Range Museum and Public Affairs Office completed four tours to Trinity Site over the past two weeks. Completing the long drive from WSMR Main Post to the site was rewarded with amazing views of the flora and fauna that have bloomed this spring due to heavy rains in the Tularosa Basin and Jornada del Muerto areas in the northern range areas.
Among the tour attendants were interns from the Sandia Labs, NM, Soldiers from the 7248th Medical Support Unit, Fort Bliss, TX, and a group from Los Alamos Laboratories, NM.
You can view highlights from the tours in the photo gallery below.
The WSMR Museum would like to remind everyone that the many animals found in the White Sands area can be active at any time of the day or night. Make sure to be alert to any animals, such as oryx or antelope, near or on the road. For emergencies on White Sands Missile Range, please call WSMR DES at 575-678-1234.
