We went to White Sands and Carlsbad the first week of June. We went with my mother in law Pam and my sister in law Lauri and her family. We got to see a lot of New Mexico. We camped in Cloudcroft one night, it was great. Cloudcroft is beautiful. Carlsbad was pretty impressive, but Ruby was tired of looking at "rocks" after a few hours. I must admit I kind of felt the same way, or maybe I was tired from carrying Jeffrey in a backpack for 2 hours. It was a long drive, but worth it and we had a fun time.
