When we planned out a girls trip to Willow Lakes and Challenger Point, I noticed on the map how close the Watchtower is to the trailhead, and I suggested we meet up there the first night.
You can read more from our entire trip to Crestone, Colorado, including our summit hike up to Challenger Point in the separate blog post HERE!
I was a little nervous that the girls might not have been into the idea of martians and UFOs potentially invading our campsite, but fortunately, everyone was stoked to check it out! We all drove in from different parts of Colorado and met at the campground around 9 p.m. on a Thursday night in July.
Since it was so early when we got up, we had plenty of time to walk around the Watchtower before anyone else even woke up!
The Watchtower is a site for people to leave offerings to these beings, and to look down on the believed vortexes.
We first walked up the watchtower to look down onto the garden area. It gave us a great perspective of how many people had come over the years believing in some mystical help from these extraterrestrial beings.
We walked around the entire garden looking closely at but never touching the items. When we had taken in as much as our minds could contemplate, we went back to our campground and packed up.
