6:30 am - Our walk to the dunes

We woke up early Sunday morning by accident. Immediately we set out on a walk from the campsite down to the dunes. We heard birds, saw interesting wildlife, walked barefoot in the sand, and got to watch the sun rise up over the Sangre de Cristo mountains onto the dunes. It was a wonderful way to wake up (reminded me of desert living in the wilds of Arizona or early-rising at sleep away camp in the Catskills) and oh-so much fun!
