I just got all my old rolls of film developed and found a bunch of pics from my trip to Area-51. As you can see by the time stamp, I took the trip in 2002. It only took 6 years to get the film developed!
There’s A LOT of big photos here. Please be patient.
Area 51 is off the Extraterrestrial Highway about 3.5 hours North of Vegas. It’s in the middle of NOWHERE and the highway is hidden. We ended up going right past it about 20 miles because the way the roads were laid out and the way the map was laid out were VERY different.
That’s me in the red shirt.
This is the scenery for hundreds of miles around. We drove hours through this to get to Area-51
Rachel, Nevada. This is where you go to.
Add for the Little Ale In. The surrounding building are the Downtown. For real.
Little Ale Inn. Apparently this UFO Crashed just minutes before our arrival.
Then we arrived at the Little Ale Inn. A tourist shop and oasis in the middle of the desert.

Here is the Mailbox that marks the entrance to the maze of roads that leads to the gate of Area 51. The actual test range is behind the mountains you see in the background.

This is at the mailbox looking down the road. There aren’t really any neighbors.
This is as Far as you can go without being shot. It is not easy to get to. It look us about an hour of driving around nowhere desert two tracks to find this. There is a maze of rough dirt roads leading to the gates. We had to back track start over to finally find it hiddn behind a hill.
Is this a UFO pic or a smudge on lens? This was not photoshopped. I don’t remember seeing it when we took the picture, but that was six years ago, and there’s not really much else here to grab my attention, so maybe I did see it.
Let me know what you think of the pics!
