White Sands and Hot Chili


Woke up to clouds hugging the mountain in Alamogordo. As we headed toward White Sands National Monument, the clouds cleared up and the sands were shining.

It is really bright.

The next day we headed up the road to Lake Caballo State Park. We got a great campsite right by the lake. But first we stopped in Hatch to have lunch. Hatch is a very small town that is the Chili Capitol of New Mexico. We settled on the Valley Cafe and were glad we did. I had tacos al Pastor with rice and beans, of course, and Jim had tacos Baracoa with lots of cilantro that I tasted and loved. We bought some salsa to go. And didn’t eat the rest of the day.

Make sure you eat there. Soon.
