A modest sign next to a dirt path indicated that it was the trail to the sand dunes. The sign simply read, "Dunes Trail."

A gate composed of wooden logs narrowed the opening to prevent access by motorized vehicles. The opening was, however, wide enough to allow bicycles, wheelchairs, and strollers.

The sand dunes extended down from the edge of a forest. In the center left of this photograph, two people sat on a log. Their tiny relative size emphasized the vastness of this dune valley.

The edge where the sand met the forest. Notice that the forest appears to be gradually growing over the sand.
