A lunar feel, rarefied air, towering ice-white dunes. This is the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, north of the Chihuahua desert. A site of incommensurable, inexpressible beauty, unequalled anywhere on planet Earth: a gypsum dune field against a horizon of dark blue sky. The silver-colored of our Airstream reflects its silver color onto the rolling “sea” of white and becomes an integral part of the extraterrestrial landscape around it.
time runs on its own, leaving space for thoughts and ideas.
The ideal stage for telling stories in a scrap of primordial earth.
White Sands National Monument rises from the heart of the Tularosa Basin and created the world’s largest gypsum dune field. On July 16, 1945, the world’s first atomic bomb was detonated approximately 60 miles north of White Sands National Monument.
…and this is America guys…
The visitor center and Dunes Drive is located directly off of Highway US-70 between the cities of Alamogordo and Las Cruces. The entrance to the monument can be found between mile markers 199 and 200 on Highway US-70.
