This is a picture of my daughter, taken at the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico on July 4, 2011. The sand is actually gypsum crystals, and since they don't absorb heat, one could walk barefooted quite comfortably (even though it was well over 90F that day)! It was a beautiful place, on a beautiful day. I got many great pictures in a short amount of time, but this is probably my favorite. I have read the rules and this complies with those rules.
