The old inscription. Sure, they could have chosen a better place to sign there name, not over the old writtings, but this is history..

After a stop, again, at Rays for a fine burger, we headed to Crystal Geyser. But before getting there, since there was a bit of day light left, we stopped at the White Sands Missle Base, a place i've wanted to explore for some time. Here, we check out the old bunker. Coverd in Dirt.

The water levels are much higher than when we visited in November.

More cool shots Perry. I like the abstract aspect of this one.
