If you've seen Great Sand Dunes National Park or the national seashore dunes on Lake Michigan these are similar. Not as high as GSDNP. The interesting anomaly here is this patch of dunes existing in the park. If you hike to the distant, largest dunes...More

It takes a little bit of time to get to these dunes but they are amazing. We skipped all the other dunes in the park after researching that these were often peoples favorites. The drive there from Uhehebe is primarily a flat gravel road. It...More

You don't need to get on a rocket ship to see another planet--simply get on CA 190 and drive through Death Valley. Where else can you be below sea level and yet be the hottest place on earth. Where else will you see a sign...More

I was there to photograph the dunes in the sunset. The sunset wasn't great but I got some photos and then again in the morning when the shadows were good.

FYI I wouldn't go exploring around the dunes on the dirt roads without 4WD and high clearance. These dunes are huge and if you are planning to hike to the top of a high peak, better giver yourself plenty of time before sunset. I stayed...More
