I, Zeb the Duck, am taking some humans south from Denver into the San Luis Valley. We will explore this area for a few days. The San Luis Valley was settled by Ute Indians, Spanish explorers and people from Mexico. The oldest city in Colorado is here. The San Luis Valley is a high desert, with the San Juan Mountains to the west and the Sangre Cristo Mountains to the east. To enter the valley, we needed to cross a mountain pass. Hooper, Colorado is our first stop. We are visiting the UFO Watchtower. Let’s go in.
Driving onto the property, we are not sure where to go.
But directional help is here. We have arrived at the UFO Watchtower.
You can see the garden, the gift shop and the UFO Watchtower. Here is the garden.
The sign explains about the two vortex that are to be here. A vortex being the way to a parallel universe. I am making new friends today.
There are many things left in the garden, we take a long time to look at everything. Well, look at this.
An older relative of mine. He now lives here in Hooper, Colorado. He seems happy. But I see more potential new friends.
These two are very nice to me. Well, let’s head to the tower stairs.
Here is Sasquatch. I met him on the Alaska Highway this spring. We are already friends. He assures me that I will enjoy the tower.
Wait. Abductions? Really? But the humans continue up the stairs. On the tower, we enjoy the view.
We do not see UFOs, but we do have a nice view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. We stay here awhile, just enjoying the view of the valley. Going back down, we talk with Judy Messoline, the lady that started and owns the UFO Watchtower. She is great and has fascinating stories. The gift shop has many newspaper articles about UFO sightings and about Judy and about the UFO Watchtower. Time for us to leave.
This nice alien watches us go. I think he looked right at me. Whether you believe in aliens and UFO or not, this is an interesting place to visit. We hope you stop to see things here. Maybe Memorial Day weekend, the end of May 2020, for her 20th anniversary celebration.
