Large Dune in Coral Pink
The Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in far southern Utah is a destination for those who drive ATVs as well as the rest of us folk that just like to look at the dunes and play in the sand. This is a relatively small area of sand dunes caused by the wind funnelling through a narrow but shallow canyon. This was the day before the opening of The Hunt in Utah and every campsite was filled and the roar of trucks and ATVs was almost constant, but there is little the can do but leave tracks that are very quickly erased by the wind. To give you some perspective here, the dot on the dune is an ATV and the smaller dots are people. I usually try to avoid having people in my landscapes but this was an exception and the essence of this beautiful place.
