White Sands is the most ethereal, other-worldly place I have ever seen. Its undulating, fine-grain, pure white dunes
stretch out to the horizon in every direction. Some dunes have impressive greenery pocketing the sand while others
(the great majority) are pure smooth surfaces. Climb a high dune and you see more and more dunes reaching toward
the surrounding mountain ranges in the far distance. And the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Our party was
fortunate that there was almost no wind the two days we were there. This is somewhere you need to go.
