This was taken on a great Mentor Series Trek. A recent comment on this photograph has made me review my description (ty ‘B’).

This national monument name gives you a visual idea of what White Sands National Monument will look like, but this is not white "sand." It is the Largest Gypsum dunes in the world and visible from space. You can easily get lost in the 275 square miles of dunes. (Gypsum is an interesting sulfate mineral with atoms at the core forming a cool tetrahedral shape) Pick up a crystal and you would notice that it is translucent. This location is one to put on your bucket list of places to visit.

White Sands National Monument
19955 Highway 70 West
Alamogordo, NM 88310

"Like No Place Else on Earth

Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world’s great natural wonders – the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world’s largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here." (www.nps.gov/whsa/index.htm)
