White Sands symbolically represented different things for each of us: April had camped there years before and remembered the serenity, isolation, and other-worldly beauty of the place. Shirish remembered his father having traveled there decades ago for ballistic missile testing (the National Park is completely contained within the White Sands Missile Range). In any event, we were both very excited to explore it together with the girls. While we had briefly considered camping there, ...
We settled into site 17 of this park around 4 pm.... just north of Alamogordo, New Mexico. A relatively short travel day distance-wise but we did get an early start. Out of the park in Deming at 8:30 am with a stop for water and for Denis to show me a cemetery he was so impressed with as almost every plot had colourful flowers.

The paved road takes you about 17 miles into the area with several places along the way to stop for nature walks. We opted for the boardwalk first and discovered several tracks made by wildlife. Afterwards, we contined our drive to the Loop Road and back-tracked to the Nature Dunes Trail where we walked barefooted for a mile in the ...
