Day 11 - Coral Pink Sand Dunes

The gentleman in the distance is participating in Utah's state sport of ShmeckAss.  Participants pay $50 to assume this pose in the desert in front of an onrushing horde of ATVs.  The ATV that schmecks his ass furthest wins.  It's not clear what's in it for the participant.  The park service sign makes it all legal.

That abstract art class we sent Ellie to a while ago seems to be paying off.

Two Tracks Tangle.

Wendy and Ellie Ellie crest out the notorious Eiger Dune.

Russ takes the high dune – while Wendy and Ella descend for a different view.

The desert's apex predators follow the same track:  homo dunicus, dog, and AT-Velocitor.

Ellie leans back before the summit push.

Everyone has their own agenda, including the Schmeckers on the far ridge.

Ridge line walking is a tricky thing.

The view from our back door.
