We visited a few dunes today that we previously visited a few years back. The state had now blocked them from vehicle traffic. I have a few idea's as to why and in reality there is no reason to drive there anyway as they don't go anywhere. Walking it is so much better.

Jessica on the way out. You can see they also downed two trees.

There is a secret dune nearby that you would not know about without looking at aerials. Somewhat tough to get to especially in the summer. A hunter from years ago left this and some of the wood from his stand is in the tree above.

Guy,

Thanks for the dune post. Our story of paleodune dynamics has just been published in Aeolian Research. Ice-age dunes here are commonplace, yet seldom recognized. Their extant is important to the development of biologically diverse ecosystems and distinctive cultural landscapes in the Pinelands National Reserve. Now I can get back to weeding the garden...
