The day started with a visit to the White Sands National Monument. It's very hot. A French couple died on a 4 mile trail last week due to dehydration. Sad story. There son is alive. We did not do any hiking. Just a short walk with plenty of people around. Beautiful dunes and sky. Tom climbed the dunes that Brenda and Kim used to have fun sliding down. The tables we used to picnic at are still there.
... and it was a great change from the flat-straight-boring-Texas roads. I felt like a race car driver. I don't think Toby enjoyed it near as much as I did. The mountain I had to drive up and over and back down had Lincoln Nation Park in it. It was beautiful, and the temperature was lower (Yay for Princess). We stopped at one of the little picnic areas and walked around a bit. Toby loved the cooler weather and grass and plants ...
... yet with whom you have so much in common. Travel does that to a person. There are no strangers...
The raucous wind came up on our way down the mountain, which jostled us a bit, but kept us cool. It's in the mid-eighties today and we enjoy that, having adjusted well to it all.
We will be meeting up with Lisa and Rich soon, in Roswell and we're excited about that too.
That's it from here, but stay ...
... this plan given the cold, and the remote/primitive camping sites. So far the girls had been so positive and excited about every camping opportunity; forcing them to hike a mile in the sand each way to a port-a-potty, with overnight lows in the 20s, might have been pushing it. We opted for a hotel in nearby Alamogordo, or Fat Tree. We salute the utilitarian nature of these monikers, like Woman Hollering Creek in Central Texas.
Driving from Carlsbad to Alamogordo ...
... over San Agustin Pass (5719 feet) and looked down over the massive White Sands Missile Range (WSMR). Drove into the base and toured the museum and Missile Park -- very interesting. No pictures unfortunately as I heeded warnings of no photos on the road into the gate only to find a sign at the Missile Park stating the park was the only place photos could be taken. Argh!!!
