Although the sun beat down very hot, the shade on the dunes kept us surprisingly cool. Very soft and silky sand
This hike is best done closer to the sunset or sunrise, simply because it is cooler at those times. Apart from that, it is a pretty easy hike. Expect winds to blow sand into your mouths, eyes, and other parts.
Nice but small an crowded. the dunes in mojave are much better
Gorgeous! Dunes are soft at the top and hard at the bottom. Hoof it to the far and tallest dunes, the views are worth it.
A desert sand dune experience as in Sahara
If this the hike in the Mesquite Sand dunes, then it is well worth it, very photogenic dunes, highly recommend for a sunrise or a sunset moment, have fun exploring!
