Today is July 16th and the 68th anniversary of the testing of the first atomic bomb in 1945 at the Trinity Test Site, 35 miles SE of Socorro, NM so I thought it appropriate to post our recent tour of the North American nuclear corridor. I must confess it was a totally accidental tour. We had no intention of doing a ‘nuclear tour’. We were just trying to get away and have a break after my mother passed away from pancreatic cancer after a long slow deterioration. This road-trip turned out to be one of the best lessons in US’ dirty history that I’ve ever had and as I dig deeper into the rabbit-hole of this history, it feels as if my mother is taking my hand and showing me exactly where her cancer came from. Mom was born end of May, 1945 and died just before her 68th birthday. About two months after her birth the first atom bombs were dropped on Japan.
