White Sands in the middle of July

Are you crazy enough to hike White Sands, in the hottest part of the day, in the middle of July? I am! Join me if you are too.

Plan is to do the Alkali Flat Trail round-trip. It should take 2–3 hours (we probably don't want to be out there for more than that).


You must have done the Alkali Flat trail before, carry at least 4 liters (1 gallon) of water, and have adequate sun protection (sunblock, UV protective clothing, sunglasses. DO NOT show up with a 0.5 liter water bottle dressed in cotton!


Date & time set; more details TBA.

    annoying engineer asks: do you want two (2) liters or one (1) gallon of water? because a gallon is close to four (4) liters. Or do we think non-metric people drink more? :)

    Samat, misery March might be a little harsh how about calling it White Sands Summer Challenge March? Just a suggestion.
