White Sands National Park, one of the great natural wonders of the world, the sparkling white sands of New Mexico, rise from the Tularosa Basin. The largest gypsum dune field in the world has been formed by enormous, wave-like sand dunes that have swallowed 275 square miles of desert. A significant amount of this distinctive dune field, along with the local flora and fauna, are preserved by White Sands National Park. White Sands National Park is a beautiful place to visit. The park is home to a variety of plant and animal life, as well as stunning white sand dunes. Visitors can enjoy hiking, camping, and picnicking in the park. The park is also a great place to stargaze, as there is very little light pollution.
