The views from the crest and summit of the dunes are both noteworthy and spectacular. The Providence and Granite mountains stretch off into the distance, as does the Devils Playground, where sand seems to spin off into the edges of eternity. Evening to sunset and sunrise to early morning are the best times for photography. Chances of animal sightings are greater during those hours as well.
