As the two RV Gypsies were driving to the world famous UFO Watch Tower, they noticed several billboards and unique signs for an Alligator Farm. Why would an Alligator Farm be in Colorado, they thought. Well, they photographed the signs and thought they'd check it out further after going to see the aliens at the UFO Watch Tower, but then a dust storm caught their attention (the dust storm photos are at the bottom of this page, after the UFO Watch Tower photos). But since they had a house in Florida from 1979 - 2008, they really didn't need to visit an Alligator Farm in Colorado.

The two RV Gypsies at the world famous UFO Watch Tower.

The UFO Watchtower consists of an observation platform, campground, and gift shop north of Hooper, Colorado. The watchtower, which has a 360-degree view of the San Luis Valley, was created by Judy Messoline in May 2000 to capitalize on the existing use of the property by UFO observers.

There have been TV documentaries done on the UFO sightings in the area and several books have been written on the subject. Since its inception it has received widespread United States and international media coverage.

The U.F.O. Watchtower was easy to find, as it is just north of the small town of Hooper on Highway 17, not far from Great Sand Dunes National Park. And there were blue and green aliens pointing the way.

There was a Little dust storm in the far distance - and several aliens pointed the way to the parking lot.

The green dude gave the two RV Gypsies' the peace sign, but who are these miniature guys?

The two RV Gypsies were relaxed in their environment because the aliens were flying USA flags.

Lee Duquette became buddies with a tall green alien, and almost turned into an alien himself.

No, the two RV Gypsies did not camp here - it was only for tent camping.

At the UFO Welcome Center, the two RV Gypsies were told that everyone leaves something behind to make peace with the aliens and that they should go upstairs to the viewing area.

The aliens sure were friendly with Karen, but what happened to their bodies?

The two RV Gypsies were told that they should leave something of importance in the Healing Garden, so they decided to honor their son Brian by letting a green alien be guardian of Brian's Memory Card.

This really endearing Healing Garden is made up of all types of items that people have lovingly placed throughout the area.

And there was even a green alien showing the two RV Gypsies the way out.

The two RV Gypsies drove back towards Great Dunes National Park and they saw a small dust storm in the distance. As the two RV Gypsies drove on, they watched the dust storm grow bigger and bigger, then it just dissipated into nothing.
