Eastern New Mexico University is located here. Did you know the singer, John Denver and the actress, Demi Moore were born here? You'll find the Bottomless Lakes State Park, Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Spring River Park and Zoo (when my kids were little there was a glorious wooden carousel they could ride for free, don't know if it's still here now), lots of great schools and many churches.
Here is some old hangers? from the old Air Force base that was here. You know all about it if you've heard about the UFO incident. This was the air base that participated in the discovery of the alien. Now you must believe me, when we lived here there was never a mention of an alien crash! Really! I didn't know anything about it until my sister-in-law read the book "The Roswell Incident" and told me about it. I asked an older friend and he said it was just something the old timers said had happened here. I just dismissed it and didn't think about it any more. When we moved away the town went ballistic! It became UFO city! Anyway...
When we lived here, the pilots training for Lufthansa practiced their takeoffs and landings here on these runways. Now these runways have become an old plane cemetery if you will!
We'll continue with Roswell next time.
