Area 51, Rachel, NV, USA - 04-05/07/2001
It was one on my dream to go to Rachel, NV, and to the border of the Area 51, the area which doesn't officially exist, using Groom Lake Road, the road which doesn't officially exist....
Join Rachel, NV using the 'Extraterrestrial Highway' 375 and take a rest and a night at the Little A'Le' Inn, one of the best stay I had in 2 weeks in the USA.
Take some time to visit Rachel (80 people !!!), the store at the Little A'Le' Inn, and the world famous Area 51 Research Center. You'll find plenty of very interesting stuff here; don't forget to ask the photocopy of the old map showing the Groom Lake Road.
Area 51 Research Center : you'll find everything you want : books, pictures, videos, posters, some serious things, some less ones.
See strange lights in the sky of Rachel, NV...
Enjoy some nice views in Rachel.....
No I didn't use this flying saucer to fly over the Atlantic Ocean !!
After a good night (in your bed or outside looking at the stars, like me...), leave Rachel, and when you see on your right the world famous mailxbox, take the road, the Groom Lake Road, the road which officially doesn't exist...
After 26 km of a very long dry road, you are at the border !!! Don't cross it ! Check the security guards, and even the helicopter if you're lucky !
Personally, I had the most exciting experience of my life, walking on the road during some meters, to take some pictures.
When you're in the middle of the 'road', you can see that on your left and on your right. So impressive.......for me !!!
After such emotions, it's now time to go to to Las Vegas, not without a latest 'souvenir' from this so interesting town.
Many thanks to Alain Ardellier for some of these pictures
