Jericho Mountain, Little Sahara Recreation Area, Utah, USA
Utah

The Little Sahara Recreation area contains one of the largest (124 square miles) dune fields in Utah.  There are several areas set aside within Little Sahara for exploration by foot, safely fenced away from the OHV (off highway vehicle) areas. The Jericho (shown here) and White Sands areas are accessible by road within the park. A much larger (9000 acres) OHV free area, named the Rockwell Outstanding Natural Area, is located at the west edge of the park and accessed by non-paved roads.


The dunes were formed when wind blown sand particles were captured by the low lying mountains of the area, including Sand mountain (shown in the distance). The sand originated in a very old very large river delta formed by the Sevier river during the Pleistocene time (2 million to 10 thousand years ago). The Sevier carried its debris from the eroding slopes of glacier capped mountains in central Utah. Several forms of dunes may be observed including low parabolic, barchan, transverse barchan and climbing dunes.
