Join us for an overnight guided tour to Trinity Site this April!
Trinity Site, the location where on July 16, 1945, the first man-made nuclear explosion was detonated, is open only twice a year, and the Los Alamos Historical Society is offering a guided tour to the site April 5-6 for the spring opening.
The Society’s Trinity Tour includes a two-day, one night experience via the Alamogordo southern approach through the seldom-seen interior of White Sands Missile Range. Departure from Trinity Site will be out of the northern Stallion Gate, with a lunch stop at New Mexico Tech in Socorro.
Bonuses include a visit to the young (5,000-year-old) lava flows of Valley of Fires, and the New Mexico Space Museum overlooking the Tularosa Basin, Holloman Air Force Base, and White Sands Missile Range. This excursion aboard a comfortable, restroom-equipped coach includes experienced tour direction from Georgia and Gerry Strickfaden, leading their sixteenth trip to Trinity.
The cost for Historical Society members is $400/person double occupancy; $500 for non-members, with a $50 single supplement for either. The price includes a tax-deductible donation to the Los Alamos Historical Society.
Only 40 seats are available. Reservations must be made by Tuesday, March 5. Refunds, minus a $50 processing fee, can be made through March 15.
