Miles and miles of white sand dunes

This was not the first time I've seen sand dunes, but it was the first time I saw miles and miles of white sand dunes. It was incredible, fascinating, and mesmerizing. A path, clearly marked (that I didn't end up doing because of the extreme heat) creates a circular path through the dunes.

Really blew me away

About 15 miles from the city, you can find one of America's most spectacular national parks. I'd seen photos of the park before but, as well all know, sometimes photos can be deceiving. In this case though, the real thing is way better than any photo. There are dozens of white sand dunes that are miles long, many off them which have not been marked with human footprints (thanks to the fine work of the US Parks Service!). I'd been in dunes before and loved it, but this really blew me away.
