Today is my day to climb the sand dunes. Mom walked me part way out and then went back to spend time at the
visitors center and gift shop.
When you climb the sand dunes you try to walk on the ridges of the sand dunes. The ridges seem to connect like highways and are the easiest way to climb to the top. The highest peak is "Star Dune" at 750 feet. Because of the shifting sand, there are no trail markers.
