  Sand Dunes viewed from Hell's Gate
by mht_in_la

When viewed from a distance, the sand dunes are just a small, dusty corner of Death Valley. The attached photo was taken near Hell's Gate along Route 374. It shows the Sand Dunes near Stovepipe Wells at the foot of Tucki Mountains (the backdrop in the photo). Here the winds are slowed down by the mountains and deposit the sands they carry.
