Road Trip: Sand Dunes

We spent about half a day in the Oregon Dunes State Park doing two hikes.

At one point we took a wrong turn and had our Honda Element on an actual ATV section. Oopsie. And Carol drew me another massive sand heart because he is the best husband in the entire world.

It was still very windy at that point and the wind blowing sand in plumes off the peaks of the dunes was quite cool.

Most importantly in the fun factor, Carol convinced me to roll down a dune. First, you have to find a good steep section. Then you zip up your jacket, don your hood, zip your pockets, lay down and start rolling.

Carol then repeated the feat into a Star Wars like hole.

  1. Rolling down a sand dune is one of my Best Things Ever. It makes me feel like I'm 7 again!

  2. Hey – I had better not show my daughter those rolling photos; she was doing the same last time we were at the beach and got covered in sand.

    We also have some great dunes over here in Stockton Bight. It is a fairly well known 4wd destination and minutes away.

    Enjoy, Shane
