White Sands National Monument

White Sands National Monument

Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world's great natural wonders —the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wavelike dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.
