Ted is not quite informed. I bought The Traveler's Guide to Nuclear Weapons. Holy crap, this CD book is seriously packed with the most amazing chunk of nuclear history I have ever seen! Lots of photos and maps. I'm surprised these guys were even allowed to publish this stuff!

This just linked to some stupid ad for a CD about "secret nuclear sites" or some such drivel.

Was there actual useful info at that link?

I see the Trinity monument up on front page. The Trinity site opens usually once a year for tourists. Some friends and I made a road trip there in 1995 for the 50th anniversary, arriving about 5:30 in the morning. There was a half-mile line of cars. There were quite a few people who worked at Los Alamos during the war, together with a fair many veterans and a pretty good number of Japanese tourists. There were also a bunch of incongruent hippies who sang peace songs and then threw fake blood on the monument--they didn't really fit in with the reverence that most other people had for the site.
