To start off you have to cross a river at the foot of the Dune (here it doesn't look so high, don't be mistaken!!!)
Here it wasn't very deep, we chose our path well, it was early morning, and it was pretty cool.... But in spring, we've been told it can get pretty rough and people can go rafting on it...

So, cross the river, and start climbing the dune ....

It's crazy, you'd think you are in the Sahara, but look well in the background, it's pretty green, right? The mountain and its "piñon" pine forest.

So, did you like it???? Feel like going there????
