- 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
- 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.
