White Sands, Alamogordo and Three Rivers – Apr 25

We had a great night at our campsite in the Lincoln National Forest. 
 
We made our way to White Sands National Monument. It was interesting, but not facinating. It might be fabulous if you bought the sand saucer, but as adults, not so wonderful. If you have never seen Gypsum sand dunes, it is worth seeing once. 
  
  
We stopped in Alamogordo, NM for refueling, resupply and laundry. It was a little larger town than we had been around lately. I worked on laundry while Jon was off making the appropriate stops. It went fairly quickly. I highly recommend the Busy Bee Laundry if you ever need to do laundry in Alamogordo, NM. 
We headed to Three Rivers Petroglyph Site, but it was already pretty late. We decided to camp nearby. As it turns out, you can actually camp at the National Recreation Site, but it was quite bleak. We opted for the Three Rivers Campground in Lincoln National Forest. It is tucked away at the bottom of a canyon up to some inspiring mountains. It took a couple of rounds for us to decide on a campsite, but we finally picked one that required a lot of leveling, but had a spectacular view. We had a quiet evening enjoying the scenery.
