Located on the grounds of the White Sands Missile Range military installation (one of the largest in the country), the White Sands Missile Range Museum is full of information about the United States’s nuclear program, our space adventures, and our development of rocket technology. The museum is nice, but the Missile Park is where you’ll snap your photos… The park has roughly 60 different rockets all used by the US in combat between WWII and the Gulf War. They’ve got a Loon (the US version of the V-1), a Pershing II, a Patriot, and heck, even a V-2.

Rocks and boulders, shaped by the forces of nature into hoodoos and pinnacles, reach nearly 40 feet tall, and make for a striking landscape to hike through.
