Trinity Site (Ground Zero)Posted on: April 5, 2014, by : Gregg
The Trinity Site near San Antonio NM is the location of man’s first atomic bomb detonation. Since it is on the northern end of White Sands Missile Range, access to the site is very restricted. With budget cuts, it is now only open to the public once a year and is a sort of circus with cars backed up at the Stallion gate check and people everywhere. It made it hard to think about what happened there on July 16, 1945….and how it has impacted life on this planet.
There really isn’t much there to see since it was all vaporized in the blast. The sign seemed both in and out of place.
