Hanford: America's Tourist Destination?

Jeff Schlegel's article, "Unspoiled Nature in Shadow of a Nuclear Site," for the American Journeys section of the New York Times promotes Hanford, Washington, as a tourist destination. To be fair, the Hanford Reach National Monument was proclaimed into existence by President Clinton in 2000, and the public is free to hunt, hike, boat and fish within regulations. Be careful of radioactive contamination and sure to make a stop to check out the nuclear reactors that created the plutonium for the bomb dropped on Nagasaki!
