Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Utah

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is located in Utah between Mount Carmel Junction and Kanab, Utah. The park features coral-hued sand dunes located beside red sandstone cliffs. The Dunes are formed from the erosion of pink-colored Navajo Sandstone surrounding the park. High winds passing through the notch between the Moquith and Moccasin mountains pick up loose sand particles and then drop them onto the dunes because of the Venturi effect. The Dunes are estimated to be between 10,000 and 15,000 years old.

And it snowed again....
