Not much to see, but it's right near the Flume, so why not stop if you're there. I didn't see anything else within the Resort, and the gas station down the street still has the alien picture outside.

Its located inside a gas station. The mural is really cool outside. They have newspaper clippings on the walls and a small section of items to purchase specifically for the incident. Wish the selection was more robust. Seems secondary to the gas station, but they...More

I've always been fascinated by the Betty and Barney Hill incident and was pleased that there is a marker to commemorate this (unproven) event. I was disappointed that the "alien" drawing was no longer there for purposes of photo-taking, though, as it would have been...More
