White Sands National Monument

Our drive took us close to White Sands, so we just had to stop and play in its majestic dunes of gypsum!  The area is also home to American rocketry, as well as the Trinity Test Site where the the Manhattan Project’s first nuclear detonation was tested.  Unfortunately, Trinity is only open to the public twice a year, but it’s OK – we didn’t really need the radiation anyway. 😉
