A friend from my San Francisco days had moved home to Nebraska and my first spring in Nebraska she invited me to go visit her mother who lived in the Sandhills area. And so it was that I was introduced to the Nebraska Sandhills.
From the University of Nebraska site:
The Nebraska Sandhills, which encompasses approximately 19,300 square miles of sand dunes stretching 265 miles across Nebraska, contains about 95% or 12.75million acres of rangeland.
With dunes that are as high as 400 feet, as long as 20 miles, and slopes as steep as 25 percent, the Sandhills are the largest sand dune formations in the Western Hemisphere plus one of the largest grass-stabilized dune regions in the world. The large sand masses, that were formed by blowing sand are now held in place and stabilized by vegetation that consists mainly of grasses.
