The New Mexico Museum of Space History is definitely worth a visit. An added bonus: beautiful views of Alamogordo and the sparking white sands of White Sands National Monument beyond.
When I said that our next stop after the Guadalupe Mountains in Texas was Chiricahua National Monument in Arizona, I completely forgot our stop in between to visit White Sands National Monument in New Mexico! White Sands was spectacular and we’ve shared quite a few of those pics on here before, but not these of the sunset as we left the monument and drove back towards Alamagordo. 🌄
At the end of a long #Caturday, there’s nothing like a snooze in your favorite box.
Our next stop after the Guadalupe Mountains in Texas was Chiricahua National Monument in southern Arizona. This was the one place where we really thought that our trailer wasn’t going to fit in the campground on site, despite it being under the maximum length. The combination of extremely tight, narrow turns through the woods, low tree branches and pitch darkness when we arrived meant that a group of other campers came out with flashlights to see if we would ever get into our site. 🙄 We made it, but only after a lot of shunting back and forth and a considerable amount of cursing. 😂 Apart from all of that, and the fact that we were dreading having to leave the campground the same way we came in, we had an excellent time here!
It’s #Caturday and England is through to the #worldcup2018 semi finals! 🏴 This makes one of Sonny’s humans very happy! Actually, Sonny was born in the USA and we think he’s part Russian Blue, so we’ve no idea who he’s rooting for! 😺⚽️
Who has been to New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns National Park? We have also visited Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota and Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky in the last 18 months, but for us, Carlsbad Caverns were the most spectacular. It was also Shane’s first time in a cave! He’s made up for lost time since then. 😛The very first photo was taken in the Big Room in Carlsbad Caverns and the last one is the view we had from the park over the Chihuahuan Desert once we made it back outside.
Happy #caturday folks! Hope it was a chilled one!
Our last stop in Texas after leaving Marfa was Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Views for days, but also one of the windiest places we’ve ever camped. One day, as we were returning to the trailer, one of our neighbors in our campground told us that one of our trailer doors had blown open in the crazy wind and that she’d shut it for us. We’d obviously left it unlocked. 🙄 We were so, so relieved when we found that Sonny the cat was sound asleep on the bed and hadn’t left to make friends with some ring tail cats in the mountains. 🙀
Hey, hey, hey it’s #Caturday!
