White Sands Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 1 photos


As posted by National Park Service:
Natural conditions in the white sands can be hazardous. Do not tunnel into the sand dunes. Tunnels collapse easily & can cause rapid suffocation. Injuries can occur when sand surfing, so be careful. Never sand surf near the roadway.
It is easy to become lost when hiking, especially during sandstorms. Don't hike alone. Do not stop on the road. Pull off the road into an established parking area before stopping.
