23 Feb -- White Sands National Monument, New Mexico

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!

 Oh Henry!

 That's a lot of sand...if only there were an ocean nearby!

 It is SO nice traveling in the off-season.

 Well done!
