On Tuesday we left the Roswell area for points further west. The highway out of town is pretty desolate with very little traffic and many stretches without a single house is sight.
Washington DC traffic was never like this.
After relaxing for a day, we visited nearby White Sands National Monument. Looks like March snow in southern New Mexico. Not! Daytime temps continue to be a very comfortable 70-78 degrees.
Again here is a photo which illustrates the scale of the dunes. Note the three hikers in the middle of the picture.
