    LOUIS FOUBARE – I enjoyed this article, and I appreciate that you included the geology.  Sand is cool stuff.  I grew up on the south shore of Lake Michigan.  (The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is another treasure.)  They have what is called “singing sand” because there is something about the texture that makes a sound when you scuff on it.  Another interesting sand is the pink sands of southern Utah.  You see it a Monument Valley.

    In the image 10th image, is that snow in the troughs between the golden ripples?

    I grew up in Michigan and remember taking dune rides in GM convertibles with balloon tires near Ludington, MI.

    Yes, I have been to the Pink Sand Dunes of Southern Utah. Interesting place to visit, but remote at night.

    Glad you enjoyed the article.


    The image you reference was just my attempt at creating an abstract image.
