Dunes and Geocaching

Our first trip to the Imperial Sand Dunes was in November 2002.

The dunes are amazing and huge and FUN!


Dunes as far as you can see!


They filmed Star Wars: Return of the Jedi out here.

The scale of the dunes is impessive.

Next are pictures of a dune trip to Gordon's Well.
