Dune Hike Professional Review and Guide
"The Monahan Sandhills represent a small portion of a vast dunefield extending 200 miles from Monahan northwestward into New Mexico. While much of this dunefield is covered in vegetation, the area around Monahan Sandhills State Park features barren but active dunes. These dunes, some as high as 70 feet, are influenced by the prevailing winds, changing shape and size throughout the year according to season and wind currents. On especially windy afternoons the dunes appear alive as sand ripples in waves across the sandhill ridges. Curtains of sand rise up like windblown veils and, when backlit by the setting sun, transform the landscape into an apparition of spirits sweeping the horizon."
--E. Dan Klepper, 100 Classic Hikes in Texas (The Mountaineers Books).
