OK, so it really wasn't a mountain at all. It was more like a sand dune. But it was so much more fun telling it to two kids and trying to give them something to look forward to, on a really long drive. These dunes are located right off of I-8 about 15 miles from Yuma, AZ. and actually inside the California state lines. There was a place to pull off, so we did. I took these pictures on the way back from our recent trip to Disneyland.
Thankfully, it wasn't a huge dune. I actually had to sit down. My legs were killing me trying to climb up that sandy hill. It was also pretty windy. We had sand everywhere!
And a look at our car from the top.
It always pays to stop and smell the roses. Or in this case, to climd a sand dune with your kids. I think Eddie loved it almost as much as his daddy did. (He's a big kid after all.) And Alexa, well not so much. She demanded that her daddy carry her.
