There’s nothing to see at the Trinity Site, but much to consider

The Trinity site is a barren spot of ground in the middle of an empty plain. So why do thousands of people drive out to see it every year?

The site of the world's first atomic bomb test opens its radioactive gates for one of only two times out of the year today. Admission to the site is free with two options of infiltration; you can leave in a convoy organized by the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce departing from the Tularosa High School parking lot at 8 a.m., or you can choose to arrive at the Stallion Range Center gate, 5 miles south of Hwy. 380 (east of San Antonio). Just don't bring any of that glassy, green Trinitite home with you unless you're set on growing another pair of eyes.
