White Sands National Monument

Photographs taken June 2009. You can rent or buy sleds. I had never been there in the evening and we have a magnificent sun set, a full moon, and lightening storms all around. Magnificent. The day time temperature was 105 and it was probaby in the high 90 that evening. But without the sun and the zero percent humidity, it was quite deligihtful.

No relationship. They just came in and planted themselves between me and the sunset I was trying to photograph. Lemonade from lemons.

My sledding days are over--at least with my grandson. My weight to surface area is too great. This was on the really steep hill shown above. My daughter kept yelling "Dad, stop digging your boots into the hill." My response was "I'm not, I'm using them to pull me down the hill."
