White Sands National Monument

While at my home church, I had the opportunity to visit White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. It was very beautiful with white sand dunes everywhere you look.  One of the things you can do there is to go sledding down the dunes.  It isn't snow and thus you don't go very fast, but it was still fun.  Despite what the people at the gift shop say when you buy the sled, you can go sand surfing, so I gave it a try, which was fun.  I wiped out a few times, but enjoyed the challenge of it.  As we were driving out, I saw what looked like a big rock, so I jumped out to get a picture.  I found out it was a huge mound of sand which I was able to climb up.  This was my first National Park/Monument - I loved seeing God's beauty.
