Full moon at White Sands National Park

Earlier this week was full moon night. Every time this happens, White Sands National park runs an evening program for the public: Right in the middle of the park, they had set up a little trailer -fully solar powered- and had a speaker talk about the park, preservation of nature and the dangers of too much human interference.
It was very beautiful, the wide landscape went on for miles and miles and the moon was so bright, you could almost read a book. It was also absolutely freezing, the desert definitely gets very cold at night.
