  2. Closest family beach to WDW

    Thanks. I'm not actually sure if we'd take him, because I don't want to mess with the sand in his fur... but it's good to have options with his separation anxiety.

    What started the planning for this trip, was Zion National Park. Zion then the desire to see a few other National Parks in that area, to eat in Waco and...White Sands National Monument. That's where we're at in the TR: White Sands. We leave Bottomless Lakes SP early and start the drive over (it's only a couple of hours). As we come down out of the pass, I see this: I remember saying aloud, "That can't be it?!". I couldn't believe just how HUGE it was. From this distance, it almost looked like clouds sitting down low...it was crazy! We pulled into the visitor center's parking lot, about an hour later, and ran into this gal. I LOVED her!! How awesome (crazy busy, but still awesome) must this trip have been: After meeting her, we went inside and bought two sleds (you can bring your own, but we didn't have any). I want to say they were $20/each and they would buy them back for $5 if you didn't want to keep them (we kept ours). I can't begin to explain just how amazing this place is. It's huge, beautiful and unbelievable. You were able to drive right onto the sand (the sand covers the road). I towed the rig in, with no problems. The sand was compact and not difficult to drive over. Heck, better than a lot of interstates out there There was plenty of parking; no concerns about getting stuck. We spent 3-4 hours there, but that was with me dragging the kids out...they could have stayed for hours longer. Our son didn't understand why we had our "home on wheels" but we weren't staying for the night. Haha. Had they allowed overnight parking, we would have stayed! While they don't allow you to park overnight, they do allow you to have a picnic...they even have tables and sun/wind protection. The experience was amazing. Our daughter kept saying, "it's like snow...but warm!!" Our stop for that night, was around 2 hours away: Leasburg Dam SP. Another great state park. Highly recommend this one. Wonderful pull-through site with 50 amp and water for $18. Dump station was in great shape and in a convenient location. It had a very nice bathhouse and playground. The sunset... AMAZING. New Mexico really is, The Land of Enchantment.

    Haha... the campground wasn't too bad. I did feel better, once rig #4 (a family in a 5th wheel) pulled in a handful of sites down from us Too funny. I've driven through Texas a few times now and while not a place I would ever want to live... it does have some neat places to visit. You just wait...it only gets better!!

    Thank you. This trip would actually just be a day trip however, maybe a future trip so I'd love a few pictures of the CG and your thoughts

    Moving right along... the next two days of travel were pretty uneventful. The one downside, is it was VERY windy, which makes for an exhausting drive. It also made for some bland driving in W. Texas as all you could see, was brown/reddish dirt flying around. On the way to Lake Colorado State Park, we stopped in Abilene at a museum called: Frontier Texas. I didn't know about it before the trip, but saw the signs as we were driving and thought it would be a good educational stop on our tour. I wasn't wrong. It was awesome. It was a slow attendance day for them, so the manager was awesome and let us bring in our pup (he's only 11 lbs). It was pretty warm outside and he hates the crate (I was going to put him in the camper as it was much cooler in there, than in the truck), so it was really nice that they let us bring him in. The museum is really neat. If you're ever in the area, I would recommend stopping in. http://www.frontiertexas.com/ That night, we stayed in Colorado City, TX; this campground was bit eerie as it's in the middle of nowhere and we were one of 4 campers in the entire place (probably 80 sites). It was odd. But, it was quiet and I didn't have to unhitch so... it worked. It was also pretty cheap ($22 for 50amp and water): The next day, we finished our windy drive through W. Texas: That night we made it into Roswell, NM where we stayed at Bottomless Lake State Park. This is a nice state park. I wish I had taken better pictures. It was very affordable ($18 for 30amp and water...with a brand new dump station). We had a large pull-through site. I can see this campground being very popular during the summer months as the water was pretty and the state had set up nice bathhouses, a good swimming area with concession (closed during our visit) and a nice playground. It was still really windy, so that hindered our visit...but the wind finally let up around 8p which allowed for a nice walk. The stars here are amazing here! Next stop.... White Sands National Monument!!
