White Sands

Yesterday we were privileged to visit White Sands! On our drive out, it was hard to believe that there really was white sand out there, because all we were seeing was desert and mountains! It wasn’t until shortly before the park entrance that some sand dunes started appearing. It was fascinating how God provided such a large area of gypsum/sand dunes there.

The Lord blessed us with gorgeous weather! With temperatures in the fifties and sunny, it was a perfect day. As we set out across the sand, it was an amazing experience to see the white “powder” stretching into the horizon. We enjoyed a day filled with climbing the dunes, taking pictures, enjoying the scenery, sledding, and walking. Mom, our memory maker, was very successful at this memory, and it is irreplaceable. Seeing and touching God’s creation in such a great expanse was so unique and amazing.

Here is a little glimpse into our time!

  4. These pictures brought back wonderful memories. My Grandparents (who are now with the Lord) lived near White Sands when I was a teenager and I spend many happy hours there with them and my family.

  5. Just wanted to note that one of the pictures has some HTML after it that is breaking in Internet Explorer (all versions). There is some malformed code generated by Microsoft Office after the first picture, and the remainder of the page and sidebar disappear.
    Thanks for letting us know; I think I fixed it. Sarah
