Looking West over the Dunes to the San Andeas Mountains
Nova Scotia to New Mexico

One of our favorite hikes is to Alkali Flats at White Sands. This day we did not have time so I walked in to where I could climb one of the higher dunes and get a look around. This part of the Monument has more sand and fewer plants. The result is a landscape of undulating gypsum sand. With the Sun low in the afternoon, the lighting amplifies the shapes. The San Andeas mountains in the background makes the scene most attractive.
