White Sands National Monument

This morning we left Las Cruses before sunrise for White Sands National Monument, making it just in time to catch the morning's warm glow on gypsum dunes the color of snow:








My youngest daughter made the trip with me, and was quite the trooper (not to mention climber).





Here, recent rains have caused flooding, so the inland dunes in places resemble ocean dunes, or perhaps a large snow-covered mountain above alpine lake.
