Sand dunes in Puerto Madryn


Primary dunes form closest to the water, while secondary dunes form behind the primary dunes
Some plants on the dunes have roots that extend deep into the sand to provide stability, while other roots stretch out close to the surface of the sand to get water and nutrients
Dunes can protect cities from damage during big storms

People tried to drive their car up this dune, but I prefer to walk!
Erosion happens when sand gets pushed away and the dune gets flattened out, such as through driving
People are using snowboards to slide down the dunes!
