White Sands National Monument
New Mexico, USA
picnic in the snowOf course I am only kidding. Another stop along the DART - although this one won't be disappearing anytime soon. This picnic area is located in the white sands national monument in NM. The glistening white sand is gypsum and you would swear you were seeing snow but for the fact that everyone is in shorts and shirtsleeves. Visit the pure white drifts and dunes and then head to the Missile Range for some history about the area. The Trinity site is nearby but only open two weekends a year so plan ahead.
