From sea to shining sea, get to know the latest landscapes to join the National Park Service.
New Mexico’s ethereal White Sands marks the state’s second addition to the National Park list.

The otherworldly terrain is a popular backdrop for commercials, music videos and films. Here, we round up pieces that channel the essence of a desert sunset.
