白沙国家公园

白沙国家公园,如果今天的照片唤起了你内心的一些寒冷的感觉,那你会大吃一惊的!那不是雪,而是地球上最大的石膏沙丘的一部分。我们现在在新墨西哥州的白沙国家公园,它最初是在1933年的今天作为纪念碑建立的,然后在2019年成为国家公园。在过去的12000年里,大约有45亿吨石膏砂聚集在图拉罗萨盆地,磨损了周围的山脉。公园里生活着成千上万的物种,其中许多已经进化出了白色,使它们能够融入环境。

White Sands National Park, New Mexico, USA

If today 's photo evokes some chilly feelings inside of you, surprise! That's not snow, but part of the largest gypsum dune field on the planet. We're at White Sands National Park in New Mexico, which was first established as a monument and then became a national park in 2019. The National Park is named as such due to the abundance of gypsum that has worn off the surrounding mountains. Roughly 4,082,331,330 metric tons of gypsum sand has massed in the Tularosa Basin over the past 12,000 years, having worn off the surrounding mountains. Thousands of species live in the park, many of which have evolved to have white colouration, allowing them to blend into the environment.
