WHITE SANDS NATIONAL MONUMENT
From the day we first saw pics of White Sands National Monument, we knew it had to be added to our ever-growing hit list of places to visit in the USA.
It is so surreal that the pictures almost don’t do it justice. Located in the middle of New Mexico, it’s remote, vast and feels like you landed on another planet. Wide open spaces and white dunes that seem to go on forever. We got lost for an entire afternoon at White Sands and still wanted to stay on for more!
You can find out all the park info and location details here. All in all everything is pretty straightforward with this one. You’ll need a car and make sure you have enough water and supplies. The further you go into the park, the clearer and whiter the dunes become. Unfortunately you’re not able to camp within White Sands but there are local spots within an hours drive.
Stay tuned for the rest of our USA Roadtrip coming up soon!
