I've never seen the Dunes from above with the shadows quite like that!

Yeah, we started hiking really early that morning! Oh and by the way it was windy up there and very very cold.

I think the Winger guide refers to Herard as the Sentinal of the Dunes. I realy want to go up therre soon as I am a fan of the sand dunes. Since I started going to the dunes when I was 17 I always thought of Herard as "Two Fang Mountain" because Ididn't know the real name at the time. 13 years later I still like "Two Fang"!

Two Fang is a much better name. It makes a good trip to spend a night at Medano Lake below "Two Fang", hike it in the morning, then go down and camp in the dunes the next night. Good fun!
