Favorite thing: browse the exhibits in the visitor center first. You´ll learn all about the area and desert vegetation. Also, you might want to join a Ranger Talk - their stories and explanations are most interesting.+++ The building itself is constructed in the traditional adobe style.
Do the Annual Bataan Memorial Death March -
The 26.2 mile memorial march route starts on the White Sands main post, crosses hilly desert terrain, circles a small mountain and returns to the main post through sandy desert trails and washes. The elevation ranges from about 4,100 to 5,300 feet.
Fondest memory: Finishing the Death March!!!!!
Favorite thing: Some said UFOs can be spotted around this region, well, only if you are one of those "lucky" few :-)
