"A Coral Pink Sand Dune Déjà Vu" Top 5 Page for this destination Kanab by richiecdisc

Kanab Travel Guide: 79 reviews and 222 photos

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park would likely have National status if it were not for its misfortune of being located within a day's drive of eight other National wonders in its home state alone; not to mention the North Rim of the Grand Canyon a stone's throw below in Arizona. Framed by scenic red cliffs ala Zion and dense green forest of Juniper and Pinyon, the coral colored sand dunes stand out in stark contrast to form the 3700 acre State Park. ATV drivers rejoice in their good fortune but at least some of the stunningly scenic area is off limits to motorized vehicles and the gorgeous campground remains fairly tranquil. Climb the dunes or sit in serenity, but most of all let nature's beauty seep into your heart like tiny grains of sand trickling from above.

    Coral Pink dunes are very cool. To simply wander out among the dunes in the early morning light is magic. Glad you enjoyed them as well.

    This is nice, but hey, nothing can beat the Grand Canyon! Hahaha... oh, I was told that as one gets older, one loves to reflect ;-)

    Ah, first :-))) Oh my god.... your photos are wonders!!! And you have been very smart in the colour choice of your tent. This blue is amazing in red landscape. Do you still find sand in it? Love D's greeting card idea :-)
