Pink Coral Sand Dunes State Park

Pink Coral Sand Dunes State Park

The winds from the Colorado plateau force themselves through an opening in the mountains. As wind speeds increase, they create a Venturi effect that picks up the sand grains. As the landscape widens and the wind speeds drop, so do the grains of sand, over time forming these "coral pink" sand dunes.
