Piles of Gypsum / by Dave Hileman

The White Sands National Monument is a unique place of more than 275 square miles of gypsum dunes and interesting adaptive vegetation. The dunes are open to walk anywhere which is really neat. And they sell Sand Coasters! You can sled down the dunes. We took a sunset tour with the ranger and learned more than I will retain. But the experience is unforgettable.
