Ever since our very brief visit to White Sands back in 2007, I've been meaning to return for a more in-depth visit. Last month I had the chance to do so, spending an extended weekend in Alamogordo. Part of the Dunes Drive (the unpaved part) was closed the first two days due to flooding from rains the previous week; this meant a lot more walking to get to the more concentrated dunes, particularly problematic in the morning since the park doesn't open until 7am (sunrise was at about 7:15). Fortunately the road was opened up on Saturday and Sunday. To view the images, click here or on the image above.
