Look at the other people (in the background) for some size perspective. This is truly an incredible place to visit. I’m sorry my trip wrap-up has to wait. Internet time is limited here. Next week’s posts promise lots of scenery and some fun moments.

  4. It’s actually justa clever trick of perspective. They sell tiny, plasitc people at the gift shop that you can spread around the sand dune to make it look more impressive.

  6. Simon – Ha! I dig the caption.

    I must admit, I guessed badly on the name of the place. “Monument” is not in the name at all. Oops.

    Dave – Hey, it does look like that. Just don’t tell her!

    Curt – Didn’t even enter my mind, but very funny.

    Moksha – I’m sure you’ve been there, so you know the truth.

    Linda – Lame, indeed. Keep’em comin’.
