The White Sands National Monument in New Mexico is home to the world's largest gypsum dune field. A vast desert expanse that covers 275 square miles, this protected area is a popular spot for camping, hiking and other outdoor adventures. The gypsum dunes form around significant layers of gypsum, which was created from the remnants of ancient lake deposits and wind-blown sands. Visitors can explore the area on ranger-led tours, or independently by foot or car. With the wide-open spaces and bright white of the dunes, the terrain creates a dreamscape environment ideal for photographers looking to create breathtaking vistas. Experiences such as stargazing and watching wildlife can also be found in this unique and magical oasis.
