Coral Pink Sand Dunes
The Coral Pink Sand Dunes are almost on the border of Arizona and Utah. Rather than being a remote spot out in the desert, as it was when I first visited the dunes years ago, it is now a highly popular weekend and Spring Break get-a-way. The dunes are open to all types of ATVs and hiking across the dunes is an exercise, not only of walking in sand, but watching out for roaring ATVs. This is a star dune and the highest dune, at about 100 feet, in the area. It is a lovely place to camp and quiet and peaceful when the ATVs are not busy racing around on the dunes.
