We woke to the most incredible sunrise. It warms up early here so the mornings are lovely. We took advantage of the sunshine and beautiful surroundings and made it a working day, Francis with his writing and me updating our blog. We both enjoy working outdoors so the day flew by. Late in the afternoon, we used a sturdy tree to set up our solar shower which had warmed up nicely.
After dinner, we took a short hike around the campground and nearby nature trail. On the way back to camp we ran into a fellow camper named Rob who Francis had met the day before. As always we chatted about places to go and things to see. It turned out he, like us, was headed to White Sands National Monument. We made casual plans to see each other there in a few days. Meeting new people who enjoy the same kinds of things we do is one of the most enjoyable parts of this trip.
