White Sands National Monument, New Mexico.

This park sits in a broad basin that used to be a huge inland lake millions of years ago. The lake dried a left the fine, white gypsum dunes that move constantly with the persistent winds. The sands feel and sound like snow, except that they are cool instead of freezing cold.
