From Winograd's well-known picture to stories from friends and family, White Sands National Monument in New Mexico is one of the jewels of the US National Park Service that I've always wanted to visit. I finally got the chance, for two sunsets, on a holiday trip in December, and it was everything I'd imagined. What a treat it was to crawl over the dunes as the sky turned from blue to orange to pink to black.
