Bruneau Sand Dunes 2011

They have an observatory out there. We got to see Saturn and some kind of nebulous which looked like a mini blue Froot Loop and a few other cool "space things"....
That's the technical term for it.
Me, Brook, and Mom rockin our flannels
(pay no attention to my hair... I'm camping, alright?!?)
Brook was writing everyone's name in the sand at our campsite- she did pretty good!
The dunes there are AMAZING! Actually, the tallest dune out there is 470 feet- the tallest sand dune in North America! Someday we'll climb it!
Unfortunately, just before bedtime, our air mattress grew a goiter, so Ben took Emma's cot and Emma took the ground... what a good sister! Anyway, Emma and I decided to ride the air mattress down the very steep dunes.... it was good times. We didn't go as fast as we would have liked, but we sure did laugh a lot!
I would definitely recommend this campground/state park to ANYONE in the Boise area or visiting the Boise area. It was so clean and very nice (showers and flushing toilets! Woohoo! My kind of camping!) and not too many bugs. Totally worth the $$ for the camping spot!

I've never been to ANY dunes...I suddenly feel like I've missed a great Joy in life...
