We made it to New Mexico! After a brief stint with a sick 3 year old, we landed in Brantley Lake State Park outside of Carlsbad, New Mexico. We spent a great few days there, explored the caves, earned another junior ranger badge and enjoyed the sunrises. We also drove through White Sands National Monument and the kids enjoyed “sanding” (sledding) down the dunes. Who knew that this tucked in, fairly forgotten state could be so beautiful?
Have a great week!
