White Sands New Mexico
This is one of the neat wonders in
America. The White
Sands National Monument is a 275 square mile set of bright white dunes in
the middle of a desert valley floor. You can see them for miles around.
The bright white gypsum washes from the nearby mountains, dries out, and then is
blown into the valley where they form these
The sand is powder fine and some people even bring snow boards to ski down the
dunes. Unfortunately, my camera lens got some dirt that I didn't notice
and otherwise marred some beautiful pictures.
