We then continued our drive home and stopped at White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, New Mexico. It was (surprisingly) awesome!
White Sands is huge -- 275 square miles!
The kids thought this was snow.
It was a lot of work to the get to the top.
Charlie said it was like "going up a down escalator."
Goggles were key.
It took a few runs to make a good path...
...the video is a bit slow at first, but the ending is AMAZING!
Sledding a got a bit better, and then...
...Henry went down!
Brown-eyed people...not afraid of the sun!
That's a lot of sand...if only there were an ocean nearby!
It is SO nice traveling in the off-season.
