365/70 White Sands, Dunes

This time of year, winds are significant at White Sands, creating white out conditions farther into the park.  After walking the dune path, we drove through the remainder of the park, but I was not about to go out and be sandblasted.  Imagine a windy, swirling snowstorm on the plains, visibility about ten yards, but it's all sand.   That is the photo I did not take.

Oh, but the sand is so soft there!!

I do imagine in a windstorm, not so fun, but how sad you missed it completely. The texture is like nothing else.....

Still beautiful to see, though!
