White Sands National Park, Arizona

View USA South on divatmotoros's travel map.

First we stopped for the night near the Holloman Air Force Base, as we noticed a public access area next to Holloman Lake. The entrance was a small gate with a sharp turn right after it but we managed to fit in with the trailer.


Next morning we have visited the White Sands National Park and we kept it short in the extreme heat (39C or 102F). The landscape looked as of ot snowed, the white sand is made of gypsum, quiite an unique sight. Due to its color it was surprisingly not too hot, despite the burning sunshine.


After a few minutes of walking across the dunes we all wanted to get back to the car and cool off. Our next stop was a nearby space museum!
