dune bug

"keep your face always toward the sunshine and the shadow will fall behind you."

I've always said if heaven is a place on earth, it would be The Gulf of Mexico. It's my favorite place in the world. But the White Sands National Monument is nothing like I've seen before. I will let the picture do the typing...

In southern New Mexico is the White Sand National Monument, the largest gypsum dune field in the world. It was created by President Herbert Hoover, under the authority of the Antiquities Act of 1906. 
If visiting, be sure to check the park website as it can often be closed for missle testing. Just be sure to visit. Watch the sunset, the moon rise, go in January, go in May. I promise it is worth the drive, good company and road snacks are always a great idea too. 

Thank you to my amazing photographers and friends, Jlyons and Mel Del. Happy I got to check this off my list with you.
