|(Yes, I actually took this picture)|
I was traveling with Jennifer and even though I left before her, I ended up at White Sands after her, but only by about 5 minutes. White Sands is just that, white sands. But it is also eerie, powerful, wonderful and just plain strange. This is undulating sand. The history of this gypsum is that it originally was deposited at the bottom of a shallow sea, turned into stone, rose into a giant dome when the Rocky Mountains formed, and then collapsed and created a basin. Of course it took millions of years to do this, but the sand is still moving, only now it moves with the wind's direction. It was extremely hot walking across those sands and yet a mere inch below the surface it is quite cool.
