Afternoon potluck and a 4.6 mile hike at White Sands National Monument. This year's looking like it's going to be a schorcher so Saturday afternoon enjoy the afternoon heat and a cool evening hike by moonlight. The full moon is on Saturday 26th and the monument will be open until 11:00. Sunset it 8:15 and the moon rises at 8:40. This is a fun hike and the food's great. If you haven't done the Alkali Flat Trail at night you're in for a treat. If you have, you should know, bring a flashlight just in case. The drive is about 1 hour so we should be at the park entrance by 6:00. There is a $3/person park entrance fee.
