White Sands National Monument

After leaving Gilla Cliff Dwellings, we headed east to White Sands National Monument and then to Albuquerque, in one day. I am getting pretty good at driving an 8 hour day. The sand dunes reminded me of the gulf coast of Florida. It was a nice cloudy day.

Albuquerque is home to Maya, Andres and Yaku, friends of Rosemary previously. So we are staying here for 4 or 5 days, just visiting. Their house is located near the University of New Mexico, very vibrant and full of youn college students. I love campus life in the Fall. I miss college more than I knew I did. So we are here and are enjoying our time with friends. There are all kinds of great cnversations taking place with Andres and Maya. They are just great people, family.
