Devil's Punchbowl

On one of our earlier days, we took a covered wagon ride out into the protected habitat along the edge of the Spirit Sands desert. It was a much more comfortable way to finally catch a glimpse of the REAL DESERT we'd assured the kids REALLY WAS next door to our campground. The guide (driver) was awesome and very informative about all the local flora, fauna and environment. The tour included a stop with fairly easy access to climb up and over-look the dunes, and also a stop at the "Devil's Punchbowl" ... which is a really weird-colored pocket of water that was formed by some strange geological circumstance to do with a river running through a desert.... or something.... I was on vacation and didn't pay attention.
