Death Valley 2013–Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes 1

Photograph of a tree trunk and sand dune at Mesquite Flats, Death Valley National ParkThe Mesquite Flats sand dunes are near Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley and are easy to access from the road. Because they are easy to access, it is a chore to find dunes without footprints. Powerful winds can sometimes quickly erase footprints, but more often they cover the closest dunes. The solution is to be willing to walk farther than anyone else.
