In the Sand Mountain Recreation Area, there is a massive set of dunes.  The area is surrounded by the tall Stillwater Nevada Range and Shoshone Mountains, which cause wind currents to accumulate huge dunes that crest at dozens of feet.  We climbed around on them until it got dark.

The recreation also has one of the infamous Pony Express stations.  I never knew they were stationed this far north.
