Hall Lake/Dellenback Dunes Winter Yardanging, Sunday, February 9, 2020

Winter Weather and the wind make for some very cool looking sand sculptures geologist refer to as “Yardangs”. You can take a 3 mile moderate to difficult trip up onto the dunes between Hall Lake and the ocean at a slow pace to enjoy the sandy artwork. We are talking slow and steady – easy does it. Hiking sticks make this a much more enjoyable trip. This trip should last about 2-2.5 hours.
