"Hiking to the picnic tables" United States of America Sports & Outdoors Tip by TropicGirl77

  Alamogordo & White Sands
by TropicGirl77

This is a sport for many Americans ... okay, a few of us consider it a sport if you have to HIKE half a mile up the mountain to get to the picnic table! This is on the outskirts of Alamogordo, NM. We stopped off at the mountain base for a picnic area that overlooked the whole area, plus some. Touring the country is not just going to all the hot spots ... stop awhile a check out the whole landscape. You shouldn't be surprised to see vast differences from one county to the next ~ the white line across the top portion of the photo is "White Sands National Memorial" ~ quite a different look than most others photos of White Sands.

Equipment: Be sure to have some field glasses or binoculars. Good walking shoes and don't forget your picnic lunch!
