It used to be that my friends and I would head down to the Eureka Sand Dunes (found in the Death Valley National Park) every year for a few days to a week. Amazing place. Tallest sand dunes in California, with over 800 feet from top to bottom. Several endemic species of plant. Night skies filled with bats… Fighter jets tearing through narrow canyons on training runs. Coyotes howling in the night and early mornings…
It’s been a few years now since we’ve been, and as I sit here looking at the pictures it makes me hunger to return, although I will probably wait until February or March, when it is a little cooler and there are the chances to see wild flowers.

I never saw these before…they’re lovely, makes me want to go there! thank you Galen
IT’s one of my favorite parks. You need to choose the time of year when go carefully though- Early spring or late fall so that the weather isn’t too scorching… They are in the middle of a desert after all.
