can you hear the DUNE BOOM???

in nature •  2 years ago  (edited)

Do you hear that sound in the video????That my friends is a dune BOOM!!! the strange sound in the video is not a plane over head or a car driving by.. it is the dune!!! After talking about Death Valley in my last post I felt that i needed to share this experience in a separate post. My best friends along with my cousin and myself took a trip to death valley instead of the normal Joshua Tree camp out at White Tank or Jumbo Rocks. after learning what a "dune boom" was i was blown away!!!! it really works!!! its a real life Legend of Zelda mission to unlock a entrance to a ancient hidden desert temple or a star mission in Super Mario 64 or something straight out of Indiana Jones

we spent about 1 hour sliding up and down the highest dune just to hear the strange sound emit from the sands... it was extremely satisfying and bizarre. To make the dune boom one must scoot with there butt in the sand down the dune creating a mini sand avalanche... and don't worry this will not happen

here is a YouTube video explaining more of the science behind this awesome nature hack!

truly a unreal experience and suggest that if anyone can go to Death Vally... go to the Eureka Dunes and make the dunes sing! there is so much beauty and mystery still in the world. Go forth and adventure!!!!!
