  • My 2 kids ages 7 & 10 had a blast going up the dunes and sliding down that we ended up spending over an hour here. We went during November so it wasn't hot but the sun still felt very strong. It's so odd to see these dunes here of all places and it's truly an amazing site.
  • I really love this spot in Death Valley. It can have a unique and interesting feel and if you miss the beach while traveling through the desert can give you a partial fix. Of course it is full or tourists as it is easily accessible and sometimes the heat can make it intolerant. Also the lighting has to be just right to get those epic shots we all dream of in desert settings. I've been a few times and found shooting this spot challenging.
