White Sands National Monument

Right outside of Las Cruces, NM (my hometown) is White Sands National Monument.  If anyone watches the Today Show (which really, who does? I really want to know...) they made a boo boo by saying that White Sands is in Mexico. And yes, when I tell people I lived in New Mexico, some have wondered what it is like to live in another country....dope!


Anyway, this is a great 50 minute trip from Las Cruces or 20 minute trip from Alamogordo, New Mexico. This is always a place we loved to go all growing up. As we were teenagers, it was a popular spot on full moon nights! Speaking of, how was everyone's half moon Friday the 13th?! I am not superstitious, but thankfully I did not have to work! Anyway....

If you ever find yourself traveling through southern New Mexico, White Sands is a must stop!


The great white dunes are created of gypsum and are endless amounts of fun! The park is easy to drive through. Of course you can stop and slide down the dunes (the sand is super soft), have a picnic, or watch the moon shine against vast whiteness.


Nature, well done!
