Summer Solstice 2013 at White Sands National Monument, New Mexico

It was summer solstice-ish, being on Sunday, June 23 and not on the actual day. But close enough.

Hundreds of people gathered at White Sands for sledding, cooking, drinking - there are so many places there to find a comfortable spot.

Former TLG colleague Sparrow (see our trip to Svaneti here) was visiting me for a few days, and we went out to White Sands to watch the sunset and the moonrise, and listen to the live music, performed by Agueyban√°.




Notice the full moon at :40.  


Truth be told, it would have been more cool to go on a night that didn't have the big shebang celebration, but it was nice. Hard to complain about so many people gathering together on a pretty night and having a good time.
