Travel Thursday – Oregon Sand Dunes

Oregon cost is beautiful but what makes them interesting are the Sand Dunes. To gaze at a point where you don’t know where the dunes end and the beach begins. Amazing.

And then on the other side of the dunes are lakes and streams. So the Sand Dunes are in fact sandwiched between two water bodies for most part.

Sand Dunes also means ATV and Biker haven. There are outfitters where you can get ATVs and bikes for rent or you can bring your own and ride up and down the dunes.

One word of advice if you are renting them from one of the outfitters though, take one ATV or bike per individual. Don’t say you would to ride tandem since these for hire vehicles are very low in power and will see you stuck in a sand pit no sooner than you start off, leaving you to walk back to the outfitter and get someone to help you get unstuck while still on the hourly clock.

 The dunes look scary when you are on top but they are not so bad as you start making your way down, till you see someone perform a trick or two which then makes your head spin and your hands shake. But worth it for sure 🙂
