I visited White Sands National Monument on my way back from the Grand Canyon at Christmas time 2009.
I loved this visitors center, I got to see the adobe style architecture up close. It actually was very comfortable inside the building.
This is a view of the 1 mile trail around the dunes.
This is the warning sign near where you park your car.
They have placed some interesting placards with information about the wildlife and plants on the trail.
Here is one about the roadrunner. What cute birds.
There are several picnic tables for families to use.
Here is one thing you don't get to do at most national parks -- sand board. Hope you get to visit this unique National Monument someday. It is worth the trip. For more information, click on White Sands National Monument.
