Park Pick: Monahans Sandhills State Park
Visitors clamber up vast, pristine sand dunes, some as tall as 70 feet. At the top, they position themselves on plastic disks, skateboards with wheels removed and other homemade "sandboards" to push off for a slip and slide down to the bottom.
While this best-known activity is reason enough to visit Monahans Sandhills State Park, there's so much more to enjoy. By taking the time to dig a little deeper, you can uncover the story beneath the sand.
