Photographer's Note

You see this sign out in the middle of nowhere when you drive south into Colorado's San Luis Valley. This valley is a weird place. Cattle mutilations and UFO sightings go back to the '70s. I've heard that even the Native American tribes who lived here recorded strange sightings in the sky. The UFO Watchtower capitalizes on all this with a kitchy kind of shop that has fake aliens laying around a UFO spacecraft. The people there tell you they are serious about documenting sightings. I suppose that's true, because there continues to be a lot of sightings in this high, dry alpine valley.
