I drove because my wife is out of town and I wanted to put down some training miles. I was worried about getting gassed too far from home, so it was a good choice for a ride. The road is 8 miles, 5.5 are paved and the rest is packed sand (I Think).bigrider said:Did you ride down or drive down in a car?
I spent many days eating lunch in Orogrande. Have you ever seen the Orogrande National Forest?
Whites Sands is simple cool looking. You almost get an eery feeling when you are there.
Funny you should mention that. I heard someone ask their wife what time it was, and realized they were 200 yards away from me, but they were sitting right next to each other. She did not have her watch, and I found myself wanting to answer them.gotmilk? said:Great Shots KFox! I was there about seven years ago and experienced something I've never experienced before. A buddy and I were taking some photos and he was standing about fifty yards away and I noticed I could hear his camera shutter. (before digital). I said " Do you hear that?"
He said "Hear what?"
I said "That."
He said " I don't hear anything."
I said " Exactly!"
There was total silence. It was late November, we were way back in the park, no bugs, no birds, no wind, and absolutely no noise. We were able to carry on a conversation in normal tones fifty yards from each other. Weird! Anyway, thanks for the pictures.
