Have you ever seen someone go somewhere and you're like man! I want to go there too! My friend Tia is always adventuring on trails and seeing places I have never seen before. One day I decided I want to do that too!
Just beside Douglas Provincial Park into a 3 km trail there are sand dunes waiting to be trekked along at the end. There is a cacti trail too which is a little longer but, the walk is worth it.
The walk starts off in trees and plants with a few cacti on the side. There are a few benches to stop at to take a break as my sister and I took a break at each sign that told us we were getting closer to the dunes. A lot of people had bikes and dogs along the way.
I would recommend bringing sun screen if the sun is out as it got really hot in the sand and on our 3km walk back.
I would definitely check any of your animals for tics as there are lots in the area.
Once we got to the dunes we found a shaded spot to have a sushi picnic.
The dunes were never ending! We walked a little ways and decided to head back before we became one with the sand.
To cool off Elbow had a nice lake to dip your toes in or even Douglas Provincial Park. Bring lots of water to stay hydrated as it does get really hawttt!
Thanks for the dunes ;)
