Valley of Fires and White Sands Monument 2012-2013

Just returned from the 2012 Valley of Fires and Whites Sands Monument Rally hosted by NM Unit 069 and heavily supported by the Four Corners Unit.
Wow, what a great time!

Thanks desertair 27! El Paso is too close to White Sands not to take part in next year's rally. This an experience only a handful of humans will ever enjoy.
Della, the Little White Dog was digging in the white sand for an earless white lizard. Her sister Sophie was off-camera doing the same.
