Like No Place Else on Earth
Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world’s great natural wonders – the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Here, great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert and created the world’s largest gypsum dune field.
White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dune field, along with the plants and animals that have successfully adapted to this constantly changing environment.
I have been to White Sands several times. It is an amazing place. Upon first entering you might not think it is much. After driving a while you suddenly realize that you are surrounded by white sand hills. There are places along to drive for you to park and walk around to see the dunes.
