Why here? Good question.
One of our scheduled stops on my recent vacation was at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. How can anyone turn down a chance to play on pink dunes? As we turned off onto a small side road to the park, snow became an issue. Even though we had rented the world's largest SUV to park our 6 bodies and luggage in, some members of our party became concerned we would get stuck in the snow. Personally, I didn't agree--the snow wasn't that deep, we had 4 wheel drive, the road wasn't that bad or that isolated. It nearly created the first of several squabbles that are inevitable with 6 opinionated people from 3 generations in one car for two weeks and 700 miles. Sounds like a road trip movie, right?
I think the pictures speak for themselves. Coral pink sand dunes look white, white, white under a foot of snow. Chicago today has plenty of white drifts of snow. No need to fly all the way to Utah!
What we were missing.
So there's the coral pink.
