San Luis Valley: The UFO Hot Spot of America
"As part of the new series "Colorado`s Unexplained Stories," we`re taking a trip four hours south of Denver to the San Luis Valley. The area is nicknamed: The UFO Hot Spot of America.
Locals refer to Highway 17, which cuts through the valley, as `The Cosmic Highway`
If you take the highway into Hooper, you`ll eventually pass by an oddly shaped dome-like structure known as The UFO Watch Tower. It was created by Judy Messoline 15 years ago.
`What I find is we get people here because they need a place to talk about it and especially ones that have had experiences. Especially abductees,` Messoline said."
If you want your town or village to be recognized as the UFO Hot Spot of America, here`s what you have to do:
Build a UFO Watch Tower
Invite New Age mystics to lecture in your UFO-friendly town
If I lived in the middle of nowhere I`d spend all my time smoking weed and scanning the skies for flying saucers.
There`s nothing unexplained about the San Luis Valley: Boredom and legalized marijuana equals UFO`s!
