Had breakfast again at McDonalds (I know, but it's cheap and it helps me stay on my budget). I decided not to go back down to Carlsbad Caverns National Park and head out towards the White Sands National Monument. I went thought Artesia (It was non-eventful) Then through the Lincoln National Park on Hwy 82 to Alamogordo. The road was great through the park even with the rain at the entry of the park. The rain, pines, and fresh air, WOW! I stop at Big Daddy's for lunch in Cloud Country; it was pretty good (Green chili stew and black berry cobbler). On the way out of the park I notice that there was a clicking noise coming from the front wheel. I check it out and the left front brakes seem to be loose. I found a Yamaha shop (Alamo Cycle Center) in Alamogordo and they fixed the problem in 30 minutes and I was on my way to White Sands National Monument. I talked to my friend Jeff earlier today and he said there was nothing to see out there. I have to disagree; White Sands National Monument was impressive. White sand and white sand dunes everywhere. It kinda reminded me a little of a beach in Florida with out the water. I have never seen anything like it. I spent a good 2 hours out there. After Leaving the White Sands National Monument I headed to Las Cruces. I found a Fairfield Inn Marriott for $35.00 (Thanks Crystal & Annette!) and clean up, had dinner at Uno next to the hotel. I'm done for the night!
