Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Hi Travel Family,
My last day in Roswell was tempered with cooler weather and a bit of shopping. We visited the Alien Invasion and ate impossible burgers from Burger King. Read part 1 and 2 and also overview of Roswell here from an older post.
Most of the shops are on Main Street and easy to find. Call before you visit though, as not everything is open. Also most people have masks on and are social distancing. New Mexico is taking things seriously, so be prepared before you visit.
We did a bit of shopping at the Alien Invasion. Its is a funky T-shirt shop. It has well made T-shirts (not your 2 for $20 set) and alien giftware. You can get something for everyone on your list here and spend as much or as little as you like (See pictures below). They also encourage pictures, so if you want some instagram snaps stop inside.
I hope you are well and your week is off to a good start. I'm so late in posting today...Monday mornings are always busy for me because I have all the normal reports to run, plus certain other tasks that have to be done, even if we are traveling. By the time all that stuff is done it's time for online meetings with staff. Sooo long story, short- we had a very late start today, but we did a bit of exploring. If you want to read more about Roswell look here and visit here too to learn about the town.
In our quest to read the historical markers and learn more about the area we stopped at this little park. It is a very cute, and well maintained just outside of Roswell.
We were going to the International UFO Museum And Research Center downtown today, but were told that it was closed due to the pandemic. (If you are planning a visit call EVERYTHING first, there seems to be no rhythm or reason as to what is open or closed.)
This museum is focused on the 1947 Roswell Crash and later UFO incidents from all over the world. It was founded in 1991 as a nonprofit educational organization and is located in a former movie theater from the 1930s. The museum is said to contain an extensive library and exhibits focused on the history of UFO encounters. The Museum was opened in September 1991 and for some reason I always seem to skip going to this one... It also has a gift store with UFO-inspired souvenirs. Maybe #NextTime
And finished the night off with a gluten free, cheese free, loaded veggie pizza. I haven't had pizza (of any kind) this year! So this was a special treat. It was AMAZINGLY good!
I have work the rest of the week, so it could be a few days till the next post...but I will see you soon!
I hope you are having a restful one. I am currently chilling in Roswell after a very hectic week. Its been a gorgeous couple of days here. It was very warm 101' - Thats 38.33 Celsius #Yikes!!
But there is no humidity so it wasn't as bad as it sounds.
This was actually a work trip, with just a brief stay in Roswell. But after being in the house for the last few months we were glad to get out and walk around. We even managed a 'walk about' before supper. (Great food was had and we wolfed it down, sorry no pictures!) But I do have snaps of the drive to Roswell.

On the drive over we saw a few murals, the BIG wind farm and a few other things in the desert. I started the post here if you want to start at the beginning.
Super glad it's Saturday and the weather is gorgeous. I'm up early because we are doing a bit of traveling this weekend. June is the perfect time to get out and explore, especially since some of the restrictions have lifted. We are still being safe, wearing masks and washing hands frequently, plus avoiding crowds, but also going a bit stir crazy from staying in so long.
We have some light hiking, (weather permitting) and of course a bit of shopping planned for today. This is the perfect time to go for walks and hikes before the weather turns off too hot. You never know what you will see in the high desert or plains area of the United States. It's not always what people expect.
But regardless of what you expect, it's always a good idea to explore for yourself.
Yesterday was a fun road trip day... here are some random pictures. More once we get settled into our holiday house.
Have a wonderful weekend!
