Seventy-five years ago last month, President Herbert Hoover, recognizing the uniqueness of the 275 square miles of pure gypsum comprising White Sands, New Mexico, declared the site a National Monument.
Today, Editor Sam, Mrs. Dada and I will take a drive up to the monument to commemorate President Hoover's decision to set aside this area for all to enjoy. Maybe we'll help sweep some of the shifting sands off the monument's roadways forever facing the threat of being covered over by sand dunes.
With temperatures predicted to be in the 60's, we look forward to a nice drive and maybe a few pictures. Happy holiday to all!
