Riding the dunes on a quad is one of the best feelings there is. In this environment, no other kind of vehicle can match an ATV for carving, jumping and roosting to the top of the tallest hill. Once you’ve been there, you just have to go back and do it again. For some people, it’s an addiction they just can’t kick. We asked our readers to send in photos that illustrate why they ride the dunes. Tons of e-mails and envelopes poured in. Why do we get the biggest response when asking for sand dune riding photos? Take a look for yourselves and you’ll see why. How could any normal human being not want to be in those pictures, riding free across nature’s playground like the wind? It’s what man was meant to do.
