Surprise! Up at sunrise as usual and wandered around the dunes again. Little colder this morning, maybe the barefoot thing wasn't the best idea. But the sand feels so good!
Lots of little animal tracks this morning and I saw the world's smallest scorpion- cute little dude. I saw some tracks that were probably a kit fox chasing something...looked like quite the battle.
We packed our stuff up pretty early in the morning and hiked back to the car. After the obligatory rearranging and attempt at organization (ha!) we were on our way to Carlsbad Caverns. We had to do some battery charging in the city of Carlsbad (don't put Carlsbad on your 'must see' list...) Shadow Shot
We got to the park too late to head into the cave so we ended up driving to Guadalupe Mountains and camping there. That was our next stop anyway, but it still meant a lot of driving back and forth the next morning to go back to Carlsbad. The sun was setting when we got to Guadalupe and hot damn that place is pretty! There was a female Bullock's Oriole at the campsite and an insane amount of walking sticks and praying mantis. Fun!
