- Description: In Death Valley, sand dunes are less common than might be expected. Five widely separated dune fields exist in the national park--yet they account for only a fraction of the total acreage. Sand is scattered throughout the desert, but in only a few places is it gathered by the interaction of wind and mountains to form dunes.
Winds blowing through Death Valley are slowed here at the Mesquite Dunes by the changing shape of the valley and towering Tucki Mountain
