Okay, to be honest, sand dunes in the desert is not that unexpected. The fun here is you can walk out on the dunes and then notice signs of the animals that make their home here.

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
