Video Edition: White Sands National Monument

3

On our way into Carlsbad Caverns, we opted to route through White Sands National Monument in southeast New Mexico, expecting it to be a quick stop. We thought at first.. how interesting can sand dunes be? Afterall, I lived on the coast of Florida for 13 years – I’ve seen my share of sand.

We were both blown away by how awesome it was.

But once you get in the middle of hundreds of acres of white gypsum sand dunes that are towering over you, your car and anything else in site – and realize they’re moving several inches a month. Let’s just say, it comes overwhelming!

Be sure to take your sunglasses when you go! We regret that we didn’t plan to stick around through sunset.

  2. I do wish we had more time at White Sands, would have loved to have stayed for at least a sunset. I can definitely see how New Mexico could tempt anyone out on the road more :)
