My 78 year old sister and I were hiking on a trail in Oliver Lee State Park and this shot was taken on our way back out. It is looking Westward across the plains towards White Sands National Park and the Tularosa Basin. This trail parallels Dog Canyon off to the right in this picture. We took our two dogs Goldi and Banjo with us. Banjo is the one wearing the red packs. Banjo was approx 9 years old and Goldi 6 years old at this time. The trail is a very steep up hill out of the parking lot then contours the edge of the canyon for approx 5.5 miles rising 958 m (3,144 feet) where it enters the Lincoln National Forest.
