Shifting sands

This is composed of the magnetized fine ashes rolled into black sand dunes (Plate 8 and 9), which are believed to be blown from the Mountain of God “Oldonyo L’engai”. Shifting Sands, with a crescent-like structure that constantly moves at least 10-17 meters westwards in a year by eastern blowing winds is the cryptic feature never to miss seeing it in the Geopark.

 

The patterns like Zebra strips are very interesting to look. The geosite is few kilometers north of the Olduvai Gorge.
