White Sands

  • People visiting white sands. The "sands" are not silica sands but made of recrystalized gypsum washed down from nearby mountains.
  • On the way into this national park, we saw a horse trailer in front of us . . . with a CAMEL in it.
  • Betty loves animals of all kinds.
  • The fellow on Betty's left, George as I recall, told us the camel is named Matilda.
  • Matilda is one of two of George's pet camels.
  • Matilda is a therapy animal. In this picture, George is mauevering Matilda to pose next to our Airstream in the desert.
  • George allowed that Matilda is helpful in his "ministry" with troubled teens.
  • Matilda and Airstream, White Sands National Monument, NM.
  • George convinces Matilda to kneel.
  • The dog "grooms" Matilda's ears.
  • Further down the road is the White Sands Missle Range where we camped and visited their museum.
