Hello Monday Pic - Imperial Sand Dunes

It's "Hello Monday" again!

Today I'm sharing two photos of the Imperial Sand Dunes in southeast California. In the summer of 2012, my family and I drove across the country to visit family in San Diego. When we left on our journey home, we opted NOT to take the interstates through California, and instead took a series of highways, one of which took us through these sand dunes.

They're so "perfect", they look almost fake... like they were created for a movie set. But these dunes occurred naturally, from the windblown sands of an ancient lake. I took these pictures from the car... literally, I just rolled down the window and snapped them. Looking at them even now, it's still hard to believe how "perfect" they look! The dunes are a popular place for off-road recreational vehicles such as ATVs and dune buggies.

One of the most amazing things about driving across the country was seeing the varying landscapes in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, and the Imperial Dunes were one of the most unique things I've ever seen!
