Our last stop for family was in Las Cruces, NM. One of my Sisters has lived there for years, and we seldom get to see her family. It was a great stop, and we managed to get in our first real site seeing stop in the process! White Sands National Monument. The sand dunes appear to go on forever. Since two of my nieces were able to go with us, we had native tour guides as well. They had the sleds, the secret spots, and the best sunset information possible. We really had a great day, and the following day, we were able to spend some time with my sister, and the rest of her kids. After our lunch, it was off to Carlsbad Caverns, for our next adventure.
