Nick gave a great ranger tour of the dunes, one of the best I've had. The dunes are quite a sight with the colorful mountains in the background and the ranger tour was extremely informative and inspiring.
We did a Park Ranger’s sunset walk and would definitely recommend it. The lighting on the dunes was spectacular as the sun was setting.
We enjoyed this stop so much we went twice! First we caught the sunset and the next day we went back for more exploring. We took off our shoes and walked barefoot. Not sure if that is totally safe, but it felt really good. Another fun place for binoculars if you have them.
It was easy to find the flat sand dunes, but it was really crowded. The parking lot was full and there were people almost everywhere you looked. However, we did manage to find our own peace and quiet and enjoy the beauty of the nature around us.
It's really neat walking through the Dunes..that seem to be so close but then once you walk, almost seem neverending. It really makes you feel like you are in one of those movies, lost in the desert! Walk as far or as little as you want, but make the stop.
