We spent a day at White Sands in Oct 2013, what a surreal experience is it! We reached Alamogordo previous day night. So we went to White Sands next day early morning and drove thru the dunes dr and loop drive. Then we decided to spend the whole day in the park!
We went to Visitor center, did watch the excellent documentary on White Sands, bought a sled and headed back to Alkali Flat area. We spent next few hrs climbing different dunes and sledding. Me and my wife absolutely loved walking thru dunes and sledding.
After sledding went to visitor center to buy lunch snacks and water. Then we did dune life natue trail and other trails and then headed back to Alkali Flat area to take photographs of sunset. At sunset whole white sands area glows in yellowish and red colors. We took some nice sunset photos, did some more sledding and then drove to our next destination. All in all a wonderful and unforgettable experience!
