Absolutely beautiful place. It had rained in the morning before we got there, so the sand was more compacted and easier to walk on. Views are magnificent. Great day hike. Didn't get to hear the 'booming' of the sand, but maybe next time! Dog friendly and good exercise for them too!
Amazing, never experienced anything like it. We went in Mid march and in the mid morning and it was tad bit too warm to hike all the way up. I would suggest getting there early. Very intense walking in the sand.
I visited the Kelso Dune area four times in 98 and 99. The stark beauty of this part of the Mojave desert never failed to delight me. The Dunes, the mines of the New York Mtns, and the puzzling rocks of the Cima Dome are great examples of the lonely and rugged west.
