Not too much to report today. The scenery through the east central part of New Mexico is hardly exciting.
Finally, after four hours with the only excitement when we got to some road construction and had to wait while the traffic in the other direction cleared the one lane road, we passed through Alamagordo and saw the white sands.
We tired off to the National Monument, maintained by the park service.
I can’t say enough good about the National Park Service. We have found every time we’ve taken advantage their services that they have been friendly, helpful and informative. It’s a shame that more people don’t take advantage of the wonderful educational and interesting information that is available in our National Parks. If the congress tries to cut the Park Service budget any more, we all ought to rise up in horror.
