White Sands National Monument

White Sands National Monument 06-02-2009I thought you folks might like to see some white stuff that’s not cold. In fact, when Wife Lila and I took a vacation trip out west in June of 2009, it was anything BUT cold at the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.

Don’t believe them when they say, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” At some point, it IS the heat, particularly if the humidity is so low that the sweat is being sucked out of your body like a vacuum was attached to your pores. It was worth a little dripping and dehydration to see the natural beauty of sand on the move. We’ve got us a beautiful and varied country.

Turning the pictures loose

I can’t come up with words better than the pictures, so here’s a gallery of the Monument. Click on the photos to make them larger, then use your arrow keys to move through the gallery.
