White Sands is always a fun hike. It's relatively flat 4½ mile trail but the sand makes for a good workout, shoes optional.
The drive is about 1 hour from the K-Mart parking lot on N. Main so we should be at the park entrance by 10:00, sleds encouraged. There is a $3/person park entrance fee.
Las Crucesans meet at the K-Mart parking lot on North Main 9:00 am. For the El Paso folk, 9:00 am at the NW corner of the Wal-Mart parking lot @ 54 and Transmountain but you guys might have a better idea, all others 10:15 at the Alkali Flat trail head on Dune Dr. We may shift the time +-30 depending on road blocks.
