White Sands National Monument

We spent the day at White Sands National Monument, so beautiful and so much fun!  We’d been to Monahans State Park in Texas before and had lots of fun, but I have to admit that White Sands is more beautiful.  The sand is gypsum and is so white and doesn’t stick to your clothes and skin as well as regular sand…big bonus!  The temperatures were a bit cool, but it was still awesome!  Everyone had so much fun playing in the sand.  Of course, three little girls earned another Junior Ranger badge!  
The dunes make such a beautiful landscape
The Jakeman loved it
We skipped renting the $11 sleds and the kids didn't miss them
Wonderful day in the sand
Last Junior Ranger badge of the year
