Snow and White Sands, USA

32.7N 106.3W

February 21st, 2013 Category: Deserts, Mountains

USA – January 22nd, 2013

White snowfall rests on the terrain of the western United States of America, sitting atop mountain peaks and over the valleys in between. Another white area is visible in the lower right quadrant; however, this is due to the color of the White Sands National Monumento rather than the snow to the north. The monument  consists of the southern part of a 710-km² (275-mi²) field of white sand dunes composed of gypsum crystals in the state of New Mexico.
