We had an hour before sunset was scheduled at 8:07 PM so we got a map of the 8 mile loop in the park and drove out to an area where we parked.
The next morning we were hoping to catch the sunrise but the area did not open up until 7:00 AM which was long after sunrise. Instead, we took our time checking out of our rooms, then took a windshield tour of Holloman AFB.
The desert setting reminded me a lot of Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson. Except here, all the aircraft were kept under wraps and there were none on the runway. We went over to the airplane 'park' display area and saw some of the aircraft that have been in service at the base.
Then we made our way out to White Sands again and stopped in a few places to take a look.
One shot I wanted to get was a Yucca plant against the white dunes. We drove around and took some shots. I liked this one best.
Next we went back to the Visitor Center and watched the video on the history of the geological phenomenon at White Sands.
We were really glad to be able see the beautiful place with Adam and Melissa. It was a scenic and magical place.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
