No longer in its glory days. But the UFO Welcome Center is still awesome to see.

The UFO Welcome Center was open with no one in attendance, but a guest book was out to sign. Survived the climb to the top and back down! There are definitely spots that don't feel secure and the two ladders are nerve-wracking for people who are bothered by heights (like me). Well worth the visit!
