ALAMOGORDO



We left Joshua Tree and headed east into Arizona's Sonoran Desert en route to Las Cruces, NM. Along the way, we stopped to visit Tucson and do some hiking and biking in Saguaro National Park.  We had a good time with Ben and Kenny and a few other outdoor minded students during an awareness workshop at New Mexico State University.  Then it was up hwy 70 to Alamogordo, NM.  Our first day in this great town was at the Earth Day celebration in the Alamogordo Zoo.  Area Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts helped us set up our booth and hand out Leave No Trace information.  In the following few days we visited Ms. Full's six grade classes at Holloman Middle School, both fifth grade classes at La Luz Elementary, the Boys and Girls Club of Otero County, and students from the Legacy School.  We had a great time talking about Leave No Trace with all of you.  We would like to give special thanks to Chuck Galusha and Paula Peters for getting us involved in the town and to White Sands National Monument for hosting us for four magical nights out in the dunes.
