    I agree!

    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!

    Thanks guys

    Just comment about the sand quality of these dunes (in case you are planning to shot some)

    White Sands has incredibly white fine sand (no beige) and very clean...

    So fine it doesn't peak, hence the rounded tops, not good for high contrast peaks...

    My favorite in California is the Dumont Dunes, a state park that is unfortunately a vehicle sports park (dune buggies - also fun to shot)

    Very white, somewhat coarse - good peaks

    Second is Eureka dunes in Death Valley (that purportedly sing), large & uncrowded - close to high altitude Pine park with some of the oldest pines at the frost line
