      ... also evaporated. Big gypsum crystals of 1 m length were left behind. In the last 1 million years those crystal have decomposed to fine sand. White Sands is the largest gypsum dune field in the world. Gypsum is rarely found in the form of sand because it is water-soluble. Normally, rain would dissolve the gypsum and carry it to the sea.

The campground has a dump station, hot showers, interpretive programs, picnic, and wildlife viewing and modern restrooms It was not full on Saturday night but all the electric sites had been taken so you might want to reserve a site before you come. It was $14 for the site and on Reserve America another $10 for a transaction ...

      ... that in the middle of all this scrubland/desert are these massive, pure white sand dunes. They are created from gypsum which is a natural substance found locally and can be found in toothpaste and chocolate, to name but a few. After walking over the dunes we had lunch surrounded by them and then headed out of the park after taking a quick look at a playa (dry lake). A further 30 miles down the ...
