14k foot peaks, sand dunes and grassy prairie make for some interesting contrasts.
Seeing the people in the bottom of this photo gives some idea just how big these dunes really are.
And the journey to the top begins, lets see how long that smile lasts
Morning light casting cool shadows on the razorbacks
Walk this way
Jill still trudging along
It looks close, but we're still a long way away
Looking back at Jill making the final push
Jill summits the peak
Geometric patterns are abundant
Jill tried to get the cardboard sled action going, but it just didn't work much to her chagrin
Jill showing off the peak that we conquered
And perhaps the most telling story, this is the amount of sand we poured of out our shoes in the parking lot. My pile is on the left, Jill's on the right.
