Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park - Utah

12 miles from Us Highway 89, near Kanab, lies a wide-sweeping expanse of coral pink sand dunes. Contrasted by blue skies, juniper and pinon pines, steep red cliffs and outcroppings, Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is the perfect setting for camping, picture taking, off-highway vehicle riding, hiking or just relaxing and playing in the sand. Coral Pink San Dunes State Park was established in 1963. The sand dunes were created by three factors: sand, high winds and a unique influence upon the wind. At this location the influence was caused by the notch between Moquith and Moccasin Mountains. The wind is funneled through this notch, thereby increasing wind velocity to a point where it can carry sand grains from the eroding Navajo sandstone. This phenomenon is called the "Venturi Affect". Once the wind passes through the notch and into the open valley, the wind velocity decreases, causing the sand to be deposited.
