New Mexico: Shadow Tracer country

IMG_1022 - Version 2

This was my morning view earlier this week: New Mexico from 38,000 feet. For a sense of scale, the white expanse is White Sands National Monument and the White Sands Missile Range. It’s twenty miles wide. And the snowcapped speck to the right is a 12,000 foot mountain.

Not only did I spend many summers in this part of the country as a kid (sand-boarding the dunes at White Sands is spectacular fun), but I set a big chunk of The Shadow Tracer there. No spoilers, but Sarah Keller has much less love than I do for this stretch of scorching desert.
