Shifting, glistening gypsum dunes, some as much as 40 feet high, are located in the Tularosa Basin, part of the White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, New Mexico. Baumann mischievously placed Camel Rock, a legendary formation located between Taos and Santa Fe, among the unusual shapes he found in the Tularosa Basin.
