From the center of Moab - Go South 13 miles on Hwy 191 - top of Blue Hill
Look for Right turn off - Quite a bit of parking

We headed Westerly from the parking through some trees
After about 1/2 mile you intercept Behind the Rocks Road.
You can also just go North on the road until it turns left to the West
After a mile or so you can start following a big sandy wash.
The first sand dunes are about 2 miles, the 2nd another 1/4 mile.
We were headed for Prostitute Butte (another 2 miles) but is got windy and cold.
So, we looped on back to the wash and returned to parking using the road all the way.
