Pot luck at White Sands

Afternoon potluck and a 4.6 mile hike at White Sands National Monument.

It seems like evening hikes at White Sands have been kind of popular and I can understand considering the heat.  The pot luck hike has always been a fun hike, with good food and a great people. It's a great chance to meet, eat and enjoy an easy hike. Hopefully the weather will coorporiare. I'd recomend bringing a flashlight just incase, shooes optional. Moonrise is at 7:42.

The drive is about 1 hour from Las Cruces so we should be at the park entrance by 6:00. I'll try to coordinate a meeting place for El Paso folk but cold always use some help.

There is a $3/person park entrance fee.

    We're here. Not sure where exactly you're doing the potluck though.

    Hello, it's currently raining in the Alamogordo/White Sands area, is there a possibility that this meet up will be cancelled?

    The peak of the Perseid meteor shower (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseids) is also this Saturday. White Sands (if others can keep the light pollution down) will be a great place to watch it, if the moon isn't too bright.

    Tom, I posted it under the El Paso Hiking Group for you. If someone volunteers to lead the caravan from El Paso will let you know.
