Probably the most mind-warping national park: It's really, really hard to get over the idea that you're not looking at snow. Stick around till sunset, and it's a little easier to see you're in a desert. And take one of the guided tours--there's a surprising amount of wildlife out here!

There are sugar-white dunes moving through the Chihuahuan Desert of New Mexico at a rate of nearly 30 feet per year. As the mineral-rich water of nearby Lake Lucero evaporates, it forms gypsum deposits that are then shaped by the wind into these dunes. Since the early 1900s, visitors have been here to hike; ranger tours and bus tours along the 16-mile Dunes Drive are also offered through the National Parks Service.

This is one of the most remarkable geophysical phenomena I've ever laid eyes on, in any country of the world. The sand is soft, cool, whiter than snow and rolls on as far as the eye can see. Corralled in a ring of ragged desert mountains, there is something distinctly spiritual about the experience here. Everything is unique, alien to the senses and fantastically beautiful. Even the occasional roar of a Stealth Fighter soaring overhead does not detract from the wild, quiet wilderness aura. If anything, it almost adds to the novelty, as if "Oh my, you don't see that everyday...". I long to go back here for a longer visit. Learn the plants and see some of the nocturnal desert animals that call this wonderland home.
