White Sands National Monument

White Sands, New Mexico, November 28, 1975 by Snap Man

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. Here, great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert and created the world’s largest gypsum dune field.

White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dune field, along with the plants and animals that have successfully adapted to this constantly changing environment.

    Guitars will play your grand finale
    Down in some Tularosa alley,
    Maybe in the Rio Pecos valley
    Billy, you’re so far away from home.
