Coral Pink Sand Dunes Park

An insight into the Pink Desert

This park is located in the state of Utah and was created by erosion of pink colored sandstone due to the local wind and climate. They call them Coral Sand Dunes. Their age is estimated at 10,000 – 15,000 years. The use of this park is mainly for fans of motor sports. Where these games on motorcycles and go-karts are allowed. We got here after visiting Zion National Park. It was our destination for sleeping, because there is a camp in these sand dunes. Its coloring of the sand is a wonderful interplay of colors. Believe that a person tends to constantly pour it between the palms, because it changes color according to density, from yellow to red. Increased safety must be taken into account. People ride on go-karts, quad bikes and motorbikes. Here in the camp we met a grandfather who was named Mr. Michigen. He lent us an ax for our fireproof wood, which we drove from Montana. From the bad qualities of Americans like reporting. They have a good help property. So for the Americans to deal with it, it must be important. As a thank you for helping with the wood, he brought us another of his woods. In return, we gave him the beer he received. Because Utah is an abstinence state and can only get up to 4% alcohol. He liked the beer and brought us a bag of potatoes from his garden in Michigan, so from here the name Mr. Michigan. In the evenings, I prepared these potatoes on foil on the grill, like chips.
