After Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Park we headed to White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Michael had been wanting to go for a long time and we finally made it out of Texas even if the RV tried to stop us at every turn. Here are some of our favorite photos from the few days we went out there. It’s like being in another world.
Pictures taken from the Interdune Boardwalk:
Pictures from the Alkali Flats Trail:
We did the Alkali Flats Trail and, while it was only 4.6 miles long, it was strenuous. You’re hiking up and down steep dunes without shade for a few hours. We started the hike around 9:30am and it got hot. The views do make the hike worth it. All around you are white rolling hills like waves frozen in time. I think if we ever did it again we would go first thing in the morning when the park opens.
The next series of photos is Michael starting his modeling career. This is fair warning to stop unless you want to see some slightly silly but supermodel worthy photos.
You’ve been warned.
I call these next set of photos–From around the frame, ole blue eyes—
And this set–That guy that sat on the dunes and took off his hat—
