I have been back and forth on that highway so many times I could not count them. My car knows the way by itself. Yet I have never taken that turn into the coral sand dunes. Frustrates me when I think how much we miss driving somewhere and not seeing all there is to see. Time seems to win out.

I do so love your informative posts. Great sand dunes and the little animals were in all probability nocturnal. I have witnessed similar tracks in our sandy deserts.
Great post Gaelyn as always.

Keep posting about the Kanab area! We are planning on our rim-to-rim hike in May, and then to dwaddle in the Kanab/Zion areas for a few more days. You are giving me so many great ideas!!

Look at all those different sands - how intriguing! I like the little paw prints going into the grasses.

Another natural marvel. Looks like the beach although its desert. The stones are very interesting. Would love to collect a few, but I imagine one isn't allowed to.

That's interesting, very cool. Geology is fascinating. We met with a customer's geologists last week and it was fascinating how they talked about different formations and how they rise and descend thousands of feet of millions of years.
