Missle launches at White Sands Apr 14, 2008
White Sands Missile Range is located in the Tularosa Basin of south-central New Mexico. Basically it runs from just north of El Paso Texas north one hundred miles and is forty miles wide from about twenty miles east of Las Cruces, New Mexico to about ten miles west of Alamogordo. Covering an area of almost 3,200 miles this range is the largest military installation in the country. If you travel on Highway 70 across the Tularosa Basin you may be lucky enough to be required to stop and held from crossing until a missile has safely been launched. We happened to be doing just that on our vacation and watching a missile launch can be such a thrilling sight.

That's pretty cool you actually got to see a missle launch... Most locals here aren't so enthused about being stopped any period of time on HWY 70. It's a pretty cool site for the passer by's to see though.
