This is a fantastic site, and very few people know it because the more famous National Parks like Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon are attracting their attention. When you’re on the road from Bryce or Zion to the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell, you should definitely stop by this amazing site. It’s small, but you’ll be amazed for sure. You’ll be walking up these amazingly colored red dunes and will wonder whether you are really in the US or on some far away planet. Oh and for all those people out there that want to brag about their experiences a bit, it’s super easy to take awesome pictures.
Make sure you do walk up the dunes when you are there, this is the only way to get the real experience.
