🏜️Imagine looking out on sparkling, snow white hills, but you're in the desert. That's just what you'll see when you visit the gypsum dunes at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. You can hike, sled, and even go horseback riding through these sand dunes, but the best way to experience White Sands is by pitching a tent and staying overnight in one of the 10 backcountry camping spots. The true magic happens at sunrise and sunset when the soft golden light makes the gypsum crystal glow and it’s so quiet and still you feel like the only person around.
