White Sands New Mexico

I got out of the truck.  I am at the beach!  I am super excited. 

Where is the water? Is this some cruel joke?

They brought me to a place with a never ending beach but no water! I am so going to chew up someone’s shoes tonight.

I run and run. Up the hill and down the hill.  I run and run.  Beach everywhere.

We give up!

Any trip through New Mexico really needs to include a stop at White Sands National Monument.  This can be tough since its kind of isolated but it was worth the extra drive for us.  We managed to get there right before sunset and has some spectacular views.  Granted I only took pictures with my cell phone, but I think some of them came out pretty great.
