A huge thank you to White Sands National Monument in Southern New Mexico. We have been lucky enough to spend the last four days camping in their backcountry campsites. Nothing beats coming "home" to the dunes after working with the great students in the Alamogordo School District all day. We got some great photos of the park. Did You Know the gypsum that makes up the white sands starts out as clear, translucent sand grains. As the wind bounces the sand grains along the ground, they collide and scratch each other. The scratches change the way light reflects off the grains, making the sand appear white. What a magical place. One of our new favorite places.
