Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

We always see this on our annual trip and know one day we'll stop. The wildflowers will make it even more inviting.

These are gorgeous shots... I think Utah is a beautiful state. Never been to this particular spot before but I loved seeing it through your eyes. Also I liked seeing the little jars of different colored sand at the visitor's center. What a fun display! :)

This is such an interesting post and great shots. I forgot when I commented below to answer your question. I think what looks like smoke in the mountains on my skywatch is actually fog although I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's what it was.

Love the sands. I too easily associate sand with coast and always blown away deserts. So weird to my eyes but so beautiful.

This is the part of Utah that I didn't get to visit. Totally beautiful and fascinating.

What a beautiful place. Nice that it wasn't baking hot while you were there, doesn't look like much shade. Fascinating sand and beetle displays.

I do love that Bee plant Gaelyn. What a pity about the beetles. As you say, maybe next time. :)

Sand can be most interesting. In the Kalahari Desert there is red and white sand. Each is a different consistance and the two never mix. There will be a definite place where on begins and the other sops. It make for beautiful pictures but seems like a strange occurance.

Wonderful post! I have a small collection of sand which I started several years ago. I love that color! What a cool spot.

Interesting post and great shots. I love the long second image and the light on the fourth one is lovely. Here on the Isle of Wight we have many colours of sands so the differences in colour don't surprise me at all.

Interesting photos of the dunes. Cool beetles, too. Would be fun to see them living and working in the dunes.

Beautiful remote landscape! The sand looks like you're at the beach, except it's reddish-brown.

Hi! We camped just there yesterday and we found lots of weird small mineral artefacts - looking like bowls in several layers... we didn't understand the description of those in the visitor center. what's their origin?
