|White Sands monument has never been very populated with
visitors when we've been there, and we often see only a handful of others.
So when anyone shows up nearby, it's interesting to watch them. In this
case, a young family showed up while the dune jumping was going on, and their
two little boys appeared to be about three and about five years old. We
offered to throw the kids off the dune with their parents' permission, but
they declined. The older boy, however, darted right on over when he
heard us, but the younger one hung back at the truck. He was the probably
the smarter one!
