We went to White Sands last night for the full moon. They are open late in the summer months to celebrate the full moons. If you have never seen a full moon light up the snow white dunes for miles it is a trip worth making! Last night they had a program of traditional Southwest and Celtic music featuring Connie Dover and Skip Gorman. They sang some old cattle songs and some even older Celtic music. It was beautiful under the stars as the huge yellow moon rose and the haunting melodies wafted around us on the dunes. My camera is not one that gets shots in the dark easily... so these are leading up to the evening. I feel blessed to live where I get to experience evenings like this one.
