Top of the Kelso Dunes, Mojave Desert, California:  May 19, 2016

I last hiked to the top of the Kelso Dunes, the highest sand dunes in the Mojave Desert, in 1988 and wanted to see if I could still do it.  It was an effort to scramble to the top, and at certain points where the slope was especially steep, I was down on all fours trying to climb my way up.  But I got there and this is the view I was rewarded with.
