Living in the awe inspiring Owens Valley between the majestic Sierra Nevada and the towering White Mountains, with places like Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks so close, it can be easy to overlook the remote desolate Death Valley National Park, the largest National Park outside of Alaska. Yet just an hour and a half from my home, lie the Eureka Sand Dunes. Rising between 670-750 feet above the desert below, and dwarfed by the colorful and striated Last Chance Mountain Range, they are North America´s 2nd biggest sand dunes after Great Sand DunesNational Park in Colorado.
A few days ago my great friends Mike and Ashley and I went out to explore and hopefully have a little adventure. We climbed up the dunes and traversed the knife edge summit ridge having so much fun along the way. It was a gorgeous day with amazing clouds and fantastic light, so I couldn´t stop shooting. I´ve selected a few of my favorites below. Which ones do you like best??
