*These are not my own pictures but they are of my own heart*
City of Rocks state park about 20 minutes North of Deming, New Mexcio. Celebrated many birthdays there as a kid.
The rocks are a natural volcanic "spurt" which left them in an old sea bed that over time eroded away, leaving what truly does resemble a small city
on the horizon.
View down the valley near City of Rocks. I have hunted deer many times in the sage, creosote, and mesquite brush in this picture. I have also sat in
the saddle this picture was taken from and watched a huge summer thunderstorm roll across the valley with a several hundred foot high dust storm along
the leading edge of the rain & wind. It ranks as one of my fondest memories.
Now on to White Sands missile range:
We'd "surf" the dunes on old collapsed cardboard boxes when I was a kid. Lot of fun, at least until you ran into a yucca.
