Driving from Whites City to Alamogordo, NM is really amazing. It’s desert, then a national forest, then more desert, then white sand! I love seeing different topography while traveling. I geek out about what animals are common in the area, and what new plants I can spot.
While in Alamogordo, we went to White Sands National Park, which is gorgeous. I didn’t think we would spend too much time there; I mean, how interesting can sand be? But, we ended up spending three hours driving around, exploring, and just being in awe of how beautiful the views were.
