Sand Dunes

On our November 2010 trip, we passed several major sand dune areas on this trip including Mesquite Flat Dunes in Death Valley, Dumont Dunes, Kelso Dunes and Sand Mountain. Death Valley is home to several dune formations including Eureka Dunes which are the tallest sand dunes in California. Dumont Dunes is a haven for off road adventures. Kelso Dunes on the other hand, is open to hiking only. Kelso Dunes are part of a dune field that covers 45 square miles. Sand Mountain is also a very popular off road vehicle playground.

Kelso Dunes, Sand Mountain and Eureka Dunes at the north end of Death Valley all share a common phenomenon known as singing sand. When the sand slides down the dunes it creates a low frequency rumble than can be heard as well as felt.
