With 275 Square Miles of brilliantly white Gypsum Sand, White Sands Monument in New Mexico was a photographers dream. There are no campgrounds in the monument, but plenty of full service campgrounds in the neighboring town of Alamorgodo. There is also a Wally World for those that like to camp for free


Endless Dunes surrounded by Tall Mountain Ranges


The Soaptree Yucca's stand out like a sore thumb in the endless expance


Such Beauty in simplicity

Check out the Full Gallery Here and let me know what you think

We were there two years ago and completely agree. A place to spend a day, not half a day. a day!

We are overdue for a "fix". We drive the rig to the rear-most picnic area, park by one of the covered tables, then enjoy the day hiking/sliding/walking-well, whatever suits us at the time. My wife was really suprised at how hard the sand packs, and the stark beauty of the Dunes. I'm sure glad I bought her a quality digital camera! She filled 2, 1MB cards there. The pictures of sunset are especially beautiful.

We werent sure what to expect, because we are used to weekends spent in the dunes in our home state of Michigan.

This was totally different and much enjoyed. I agree the sand wasnt like anything I had ever walked on and was very hard packed.

Our one dog loves to eat snow, and when we let him out of the truck, he ran right to the first pile of sand and took a huge mouthfull.

The wife and I were laughing so hard as he was trying to spit it out just as confused as could be.

Pat,
I can relate to the dog eating the sand. Our 2 dogs did the same thing. It's really an interesting place and surreal. You can see it from miles away and I can imagine what people think if they are not aware what it is.
