Down in the San Luis Valley on SR17 between Moffatt and Hooper, is a center for extraterrestrial enthusiasts, a place that has a reputation for being frequented by UFOs. People flock from all over America, perhaps the world, to sit on the observation deck at night looking for spacecraft.
According to the lady that runs it, Spanish conquistadors wrote in their diaries about witnessing UFOs landing on the plain when they were first traveling through this area in the 16th century. I have not corroborated this claim, but just pass it along. There is a garden that psychics say contains powerful energy spots, and it is traditional to leave something behind after visiting. Walking the garden is said to heal you of diseases.
I stopped there after attending the Southern Colorado Film Festival, as a good place to use up two rolls of Fuji Reala (expired 1993) that were kindly given to me by a lady in a thrift store in Alamosa, CO. I thought that in keeping with the always grainy, out of focus and generally crappy images of supposed flying saucers, 25-year-old film would be a good choice. The only saucers I saw though, were grounded.
