White Sands National Monument

With the parts on order for the slide out we thought we should make a visit to White Sands.
White Sands is 275 square miles of pure white gypsum sand.Rain runoff from the area collects at one end in a lake and as it dries forms crystals that break down into gypsum sand, then blow across the region, moving up to 30 feet a year.
After some hiking on the dunes we headed back to Las Cruces.
