White Sands National Monument is half way between Las Cruces and Alamogordo on hwy 70.
It has a wnderful visitor center with a 17 minute video, interpretative center and gift shop. After tour introduction to the park, you drive to the dunes gate and for $3 a person, tou get to drive your vehicle 8 miles there and back through the dunes with an opportunity to stop and hike on guided trails or sled the dunes with a flying saucer type sled which you can purchase at the gift shop.
We experienced very high winds on the highway back to Las Cruces with lots of blowing sand.
