Alkali Flat Trail, White Sands National Park, NM
Contrary to what the name of the trail may suggest, Alkali Flat has you hiking up and down dunes the entire way. This is a dog-friendly, moderate-difficulty 5-mile loop.
Reese went puppy-crazy romping in the pristine white sand. He absolutely loved it!
We only encountered 4 other people on this hike, all within the first 10 minutes. The hike had a surreal, otherworldly feel to it. One of the most unique hikes we've ever taken.
