The sparkling sand dunes of gypsum stretch as far as the eye could see. Reaching heights of a three story building. It is the largest in the world.
White Sands is an active missile testing range. The testing takes place a great distance from the monument but for safety reasons the park is closed for several hours during the missile testing.
Sledding down the steep dunes is a favorite activity. Sleds are available at the visitor centers.
