Alkali Flat Trail +

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.

    Terrific hike and extremely friendly group of folks. Perfect weather and very scenic. Is it really January?!! I think everyone agreed that a good time was had by all and new frendships were forged.

    The day turned out to be super for this hike. It was challenging enough and yet not too strenuous. I met some wonderful people and truly look forward to meeting up again. Thanks so much.
