White Sands

New Mexico, May 2012

One place I always wanted to get to but have not had the chance to, until today, has been White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, New Mexico.
 
It is a vast area of white sand dunes made from gypsum crystals. Part of it is a military missile testing range, and part of it is open to the public.
 
We went there today and brought with us a few snow slides that we used on the dunes. They were meant for snow, but they worked well in the sand too... Well, except when you fall and get covered in sand, which happened a LOT.
 
As the sun got closer to setting, our group split up and we each walked out into the desert to capture some sunset photos. The low light on the white dunes made for some great photographic opportunities.
 
I look forward to returning here again in the future.
