Astrophysicists say there are more galaxies in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the world’s beaches and deserts combined. 226 miles south of Albuquerque lies a sandy universe speckled with the white galaxies of a long-dead lake. White Sands is land of giant dunes, dwarfed by the San Andreas Mountains. From hiking to sand boarding to meditating to spectating, White Sands is sea of gypsum crystals and beauty, exclusive to the Land of Enchantment.
