After leaving Marfa, Texas, we decided to take an impromptu trip to Alamogordo. You may be asking yourself, "where in the world?" and "but why?"
The truth: we wanted to visit White Sands National Monument. It was absolutely on our To-Do list. (Note: our To-Do list is more of a joint mental compilation that is continuously growing. We can't help it.) Being only a few hours away, we decided what better time than now, and traveled up into New Mexico.
And...I'm so glad we did. White Sands is absolutely magical. The photos we took were outstanding. The sand beneath our feet was soft and cold. The fact you could get out of your cars and stand on a dune, untouched by other humans that day, was glorious. Take a look at some of the killer photos we had an absolute blast taking.
Apparently you can sled down the dunes like snow, which we tried with the lid of a storage container we had--and failed. But you can buy sleds in the Visitor Center, new or used, and sell them back at the end of your trip. How cool!
I absolutely recommend White Sands to anyone looking for a natural beauty fix. Or to spend the day playing around with photography.
Stay tuned for our next post on the tour of a pistachio farm in Alamorgordo that changed the way we eat pistachios forever.
