White Sands National Monument!

A looooong drive…..7 1/2 hrs south down to White Sands National Monument.  We drove through missile test sites, pistachio groves in Alamogordo, lava fields all the way to the bottom of the state, but White Sands was so worth it.  I was told it was one of those “been there done that” things….so not.  It was like the beach where you could spend hours contemplating life, playing, and you could spend all day just taking in it’s beauty.  Due to construction, and it just being a loooong way from Farmington, we didn’t have as much time there as we could have spent.  We played in the sand for a little more than an hour then we drove through the whole park enjoying the sight.  After that we did our Jr. ranger homework in the museum/visitors center.  Now onto Roswell.

Do you see the Great Horned Owl (there is a whole family up there) in the soap tree yucca?
