White Sands NP to be first in line when the gates opened, but the magic light was gone. Nevertheless, we took a bunch of pictures, some of which are contest-worthy.
Then it was on to Las Cruces to visit Sandra's Uncle Murray and his down-the-hall friend Peggy. We picked them up and headed for Hatch, home of the famous Hatch Chiles. We bought some seeds, and had an excellent lunch at the Pepper Pot, a down-home New Mexican cafe in Hatch. All agreed it was a great place to eat.
Tomorrow we head for Roswell via San Patricio (Hurd-Wyeth gallery/museum), and possibly Lincoln. All travel now points toward home.
