seven hundred thirty three

velvet folds

 

… Eureka sand dunes in the northern section of Death Valley National Park accessible from Big Pine, California via Highway 168 and Death Valley Road. These are the tallest sand dunes in California at about 700 feet tall, but only cover about 3 square miles. The Kelso sand dunes in Mojave National Preserve previously shown here are just slightly shorter but cover more than ten times the footprint of Eureka dunes at about 45 square miles. The Eureka dunes are nestled in a smaller valley and stand out from the flat-ish scrubby valley floor in their amazing height and brightness.
