By Special to the Monitor

Hitch a ride on the road of scientific innovation with Otowi Station Bookstore and Buffalo Tours Thursday.

The bookstore and travel business are teaming up to present a travel show from 6:30-8 p.m.  at Otowi Station.

Buffalo Tours will introduce to the public to its new Nuclear West Bus Tour in the Intermountain West and Otowi Station will offer published resources about travel and the myriad locations pertaining to all things atomic.  

The Kaleidoscoops Ice Cream bus will is planning to be there, too.

Spectacular mesas, mountains and the vast open spaces of the Colorado Plateau often come to mind when one thinks of the Intermountain West.

Within these sites are evidence of Atomic Age enterprises:  uranium-boom mines and mills in Utah and western Colorado, Project Plowshare sites for stimulation of fossil fuel production, nuclear reactor research at Idaho National Laboratory and Historic Wendover Airfield in Utah where Enola Gay crews trained in secrecy during WW II for the first atomic bomb drops.

The first excursion in a series of tours exploring the “Nuclear West” will focus on four contributing western states.

Traveling by motor coach from Los Alamos, the Aug. 22-30 tour will concentrate on Utah, Idaho and western Colorado.
