Sledding at White Sands National Monument.
The secret to speed? Wax.
Mama couldn't seem to stay the course.
Just to give you some perspective ...
Oh, look! There's Hubs!
The kids watched sunsets from the top of our pickup.
Carlsbad Caverns. Just as cool as I remembered!
See those tiny figures? That's me, my parents and Tootie.
Gorgeous, no? And the caverns' temp stays in the mid-50s.
We felt very tiny in here.
Sitting Bull Falls National Recreation Area
We spent three nights in Alamogordo. My parents met us there and we enjoyed more luxurious camping than usual in their RV. While there, we visited White Sands, Carlsbad Caverns and Sitting Bull Falls. We also dropped by the Toy Train Museum and the New Mexico Museum of Space History.
My mom and I also visited Heart of the Desert Pistachios and Wines. That’s where I bought the Pistachio Rose’ I mentioned in my column.
Tomorrow, I’ll share photos from Ruidoso, where the humidity was 5 percent. Highs in the low 80s, lows in the mid-60s. You’ll see pictures from a mother-daughter trail ride, thunder clouds looming over mountains and the Flying J Ranch.
