Imperial Sand Dunes, AZ
Ive been wanting to see this place since I moved to AZ. Its about 2.5 hours away from downtown and totally worth the drive. Its like playing in the worlds largest etch-a-sketch!
You know your there when the view out of your window looks like this!
I went during the week, and it was very quiet. Yet theres still alot of offroad vehicles leaving tracks in the sand. If you want the unspoiled views you have to walk in quite a bit.
Relaxing after a short walk in.
Interesting, I cant imagine how difficult it was to cut a road through that much sand.
Footprints in the sand
Some windswept dune stuff.
Offroaders off in the distance.
Almost unspoiled. My own footsteps in the foreground.
I dont know what would be proper footwear but your feet will sink into the sand a good bit.
Be prepared, the gas is EXPENSIVE at the dunes!
