Roswell, New Mexico
In 1947, people in Roswell saw a "craft of unknown origin" crash to the ground. Do you know what that means? Aliens! I think visiting Roswell was the most exciting part of my whole trip.
Hey! I saw something fall from the sky! Dad didn't believe me, but I have one word for him: aliens! Dad had two words for me: overactive imagination. Hmm... did he want to say that, or did aliens MAKE him say that?
I was staring at the sky, when suddenly it hit me. No, not a UFO, but a question: what do aliens eat? Probably something really weird. Something like this peanut butter & pickle sandwich recipe!
Los Viajeros weren't so sure about the whole alien thing. But they wrote a song about it You Won't Believe!
We visited Carlsbad Caverns. Each night hundreds of thousands of bats fly out. It actually looks like a big cloud of smoke. I guess things aren't always what they seem.
Outside it was 100 degrees, but in the caves it was a cool 56 degrees. Inside, we saw "rock icicles," stalactites and stalagmites. But which ones hang down? And how are they made? Could it be: aliens?
The Brain says stalactites grow down, and stalagmites grow up. To remember: stalactites hang on "tite" to the ceiling. Stalagmites "mite" reach the ceiling. Dripping water full of minerals makes them.
