What a gorgeous place to visit. The conditions are always changing. This day provided a nice storm with a massive storm front coming over the dunes. Watch out for the sand during the windstorms if you value your camera.

This is yet another different terrain in this very diverse park. Several miles of tall sand dunes stretched out in front of us, surrounded by several mountain ranges! Walking on the dunes makes for good exercise as well as a chance to look for animal prints, particularly around the bushes scattered widely among the dunes. This area must be especially beautiful in the sun of the early morning or late afternoon!

This was one of our favorite hikes in Death Valley. We looked out over these incredible dunes and chose one of the highest ones to hike. Well, it can be tough going up and down the dunes and much further than you think to reach that high dune! But we are so glad we persevered. It was an amazing sight from the top. You could see all the dunes and the surrounding beautiful mountains. It was work but well worth it!

We were staying at nearby Stovepipe Wells Village, and stopped on the highway several times to take photos. (from the west in the morning; from the south in the afternoon -- to get the most dramatic shadows. We also drove out to the parking area one night to see the stars without interference from lights -- and were stalked by a coyote who came within about 50 yards of us, barely visible as a shadow in the half-moon's light.

This is a beautiful, quiet place. If you want some great photos, get there very early in the morning before all the visitors leave their footprints everywhere.
