Dune Not Disturb

White Sands National Monument can only be described as other-worldly.

The thrill of scrambling through the dunes,


and leaving temporary footprints in the soft white sand…


is humbling in the presence of its vastness.


The ethereal gypsum dunes sweep across 275 square miles of the Tularosa Basin,

dune and sun

forming a complex yet delicate ecosystem…


…that supports the constant shape-shifting caused by precipitation and wind.


But the surrealism that surrounds the spectator…approaching sunset

intensifies when the sun dips below the horizon of the Sacramento Mountains…

quickly cooling the sand beneath one’s feet,

desert glow

awakening the magic that ignites the desert glow.
