White Sands National Monument

On Sunday, October 20, 2019 I continued my drive to El Paso to meet my Road Scholar group. However, on my way I stopped at the White Sands National Monument for a couple of hours. I normally don’t like to see white stuff like this on the ground but this white stuff wasn’t cold and wet. The Visitor’s Center sold round plastic sleds and I saw many families playing on the dunes. There was also a group tailgating and sledding. The other parks I’ve been to with dunes don’t want you to walk on the dunes but here they encourage it.


  1. Pam, did you talk to the visitor center ranger and ask about which bird you saw? Maybe I’ll guess which bird species you photographed. New Mexico has plenty to see!
