Grand Canyon Trip Detour: White Sands, NM

Here we are in White Sands, New Mexico. It is totally silent there, which if you're not accustomed to, is very unsettling.

The visitor center has sleds you can rent to go down the dunes. It is bloody hot there, but the white gypsum sand is cool to the touch.

We had a fine time and headed back to the car, only to discover the tiny gnats that were dancing in the sweat under our clothes.
