Hiking National Park out and about

White Sands National Monument, White, Windy and Warm

Today was kind of a laid back day. We’re both resting our wrists and hands from a beating they took last Sunday and both of our bikes are desperately in need of new chains and sprockets. They’re scheduled for next week to have them put on, and in the meantime, we get to just hang out in this beautiful region via foot.

It was super windy at White Sands National Monument, and the sky was white with sand in some places from where the dunes were filling the atmosphere, making the neaby mountains look like ghosts. We hiked around a bit but turned back after our eyes started filling with more sand than we were prepared for. Next time, goggles.

  • What great pictures – love the contrast of the dog against the sand dunes. My husband & I visited White Sands during our week long roadtrip of the Southwest & it was our favorite place that we visited during our trip.

    It’s one of our favorites too!
