White Sands, New Mexico

No water.  No ocean.  No river. 
Just dry, hot and bright.  But the sand is cool...as in not hot.  You can walk barefoot (they say...).

It's all gypsum.
We saw several white lizards and a black scorpion. And tiny pink flowers.
This white blanket just seems to come out of nowhere.

It was definitely too much for Samuel.  The heat got to him and he just sat on the floor of the bathroom complaining.  Daddy had to pick him up and bring him to the car.  Cold water in and out of his body made a big difference and by the time he left the park with a Popsicle in his mouth, all was forgotten!
