Great Light, Beautiful Photographs and a Picnic Lunch . . .
Appearing like a mirage in the heart of gleaming white dunes, these surreal canopied picnic tables await visitors to White Sands National Monument. Designed by Lyle Bennett, the principal architect of the White Sands Visitor Center (built in the late 1930's) these works of functional art reflect his preference for modernist architecture and his appreciation of the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
