|The little town is White Sands Missile Range Army Base.|
White Sands Missile Range Museum. I had the golden pass, my retired military ID and they let us through the gate with no questions asked. Wish I had thought about that sooner because we could have gotten gas on the base instead of driving back over the mountain. That's what makes it an adventure.

We left the rocket park and headed east again towards Holloman AFB where we would spend a few days in the FamCamp area. We stopped at White Sands NM on the way to the FamCamp and Patrick got a Jr. Ranger Book and we looked at the visitors center. We saved the trip into the dunes for the next day, 4/10.

|The camera didn't want to cooperate doing the panorama shot so we have a black bar at the end.|
After we toured the NM, we went back to the trailer to hang out. There was a forest fire up in the mountain.
