We had tried to go the Wire Pass/ Buckskin gulch but it was extremely busy so decided to save that one for another time. We found a campsite near Diana’s throne then had a bit of time to kill so headed over to check out the Sand Dunes just before sunset. You do have to pay $10 for entry to the main area, but there was an additional {free} parking lot prior on the road. The free area is definitely not as scenic so we paid, as it helps maintain the parks anyways!

As expected, it was quite busy there at the beginning since there is a campground there, picnic tables, very clean bathrooms, etc. The people were clustered on one particular sand dune so we just walked in the opposite direction and had some solitude! Holy crap, walking uphill in sand is hard! We got a big laugh at me trying to actually get up the dune (1 step forward, 2 steps back type thing!). There were really cool bug tracks in the sand that had me fascinated. 8) would love to know which insects/critters caused them!

We hung out on the dune for a bit by ourselves before heading back the way we came. It’s definitely a pretty place but a bit touristy for my tastes. I’m glad I saw it though! We went back to camp & turned in early for an adventure packed Saturday!
