Like No Place Else on Earth This is one of the world's great natural wonders - the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dune-field. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dune-field, along with the plants and animals that live here. White Sands is located in the Chihuahuan Desert in the southern part of New Mexico near Holloman Air Force Base and White Sands Missile Range.
