Sand Mountain

Day field trip 2012

Since we were in Reno for DPS 2012, Ralph Lorenz, Jason Barnes, Joe Spitale and I decided to do a day trip to Sand Mountain, about 30 miles east. It's got a nice playa lake close by, which had water in it, and there were some nice dust devils. Ralph got a big kite up, and we got some of the dunes to boom (though it's hard to hear it in the vids).
