The 60th Anniversary of White Sands National Monument:
Over two hundred people attended, including Senators Domenici, Bingaman, Rep. Skeen, state and county officials, former Superintendents, past/present employees and local dignitaries.
The Army set up a temporary building in the heart of the dunes. There were games, music and a great barbeque meal. The weather turned bad but that did not deter hundreds of folks from celebrating one of nature's real beauties first-hand.
This 60th anniversary was documented with a panoramic photograph of all attendees in the manner of the photo of opening day celebrations.
Now, White Sands National Monument gets a cake and a movie. How sad.

As a kid I remember my father taking me out to the Dunes at night for parties that the Whites Missle Range would throw for their employees back in those days. I remember having wonderful times..even when my Dad would bury me up to my neck to keep me from wandering off. Those were good times and I have often remembered them over the years with great nostalgia.

I remember my dad took me out there and buried me in the sand and then left.
