[VIDEO] 7 Weird Destinations You Never Knew Existed 1/7: New Mexico’s Snowy Sands
If you’re a child of the 90s, you probably remember the video for Boyz II Men’s minor hit “Water Runs Dry” more than the song. In it, the boyz…er, men, traipse barefoot through a landscape that appears to be snow. In reality, these are the stark-white, gypsum sands of White Sands National Monument, in Alamogordo, New Mexico, which remain cool to the touch—but thankfully, not as cold as snow!—even in the blistering heat of summer.
HOW TO VISIT: From El Paso, take I-10 west to I-25 north, then head east on New Mexico 70 until you see the signs. From Albuquerque or Sante Fe, do the same, only take I-25 south.
