White Sands National Monument
Imagine walking on mounds of pure white gypsum sand. All you can see are miles and miles of sand dunes and above you are the panoramic New Mexico skies.
We're staying in an RV resort for a few days waiting out a rain storm so we're playing tourist while we're here. I thought you might enjoy a few photos from our visit to White Sands National Monument.
Before your path are 275 miles of sparkling white sand and above you are spectacular clouds in every shape you can think of set against crystal clear blue sky.
Far off in the distance you can see the outline of mountain ranges looking almost black in comparison to the white sea of sand you're walking on.
You can feel the wind blowing on your face but you can't hear a sound, except perhaps the occasional rustling of native grasses clinging to the edge of the dunes.
Comments are welcome.
