White Sands National Monument
A beautiful playground in the New Mexican desert. White gypsum sand dunes encroach on the surrounding desert and create a spectacle worth seeing. Add clouds, changing light, and plantlife struggling for survival, to produce a spectacular scene. As the day winds down, climb to the top of a tall sand dune because the show is about to begin. One will see deep shadows, dunes taking on the colors of the sky, and for the encore,stunning sunsets.
