White Sands: an Extraordinary Experience
If you would like to commemorate your last visit to the mesmerizing White Sands National Park, this is great souvenir that will bring back unforgettable memories. Sometimes we forget how untouched and free some parts of the world are. People live with plenty of open air and the tranquility that gorgeous natural landscapes afford. White Sands isn't just a park, it's a national monument, and with good reason. It just isn't quite like anywhere else in the country. Very specific geological events had to occur for it to become what it is today. It appeals to our human drive to find the extraordinary in the world.
This is why this is a great magnet, it looks like you're admiring a picture taken in a different planet. Almost like the setting of a Star Wars movie. There are no human elements interjected and you are free to let your imagination soar.
The History of the Park
The project of the park in White Sands started in El Paso but it didn't prosper as it was linked to the idea of hunting which contradicted the purpose of a national park. More than twenty years later, in 1921, the American Secretary of Interior brought back the proposal. The park was finally created in 1933 by President Herbert Hoover. It would be open all year round what contrasted with other national parks located North.
The park was almost immediately a hit among vacationers and travelers from all over the country who started stopping by to admire the huge white dunes. Trails were open to make the walking easier. Maps of White Sands can be found at the Information center located at the entrance to the park. As well, New Mexico state government has included this information in their official website. Al in all, this is great travel souvenir to take back home.
