Just Another Day In Utah

Atop the Petrified Sand Dunes, Snow Canyon State Park

Not quite the trademarked X-jump happening on the top of that dune, but close.

Wait - "petrified" sand dunes? How does that work? A pile of sand gets doused with some liquid that hardens and captures a moment in time as regards the position and gazillions of sand grains?

The patented X-jump is absent because the jumper (Elaine) does not have permission to use it.

As far a "petrified" sand dunes are concerned, they are produced when ancient sand dunes hardened into stone under the overlying subsequent material, which later eroded away.
