That's a great idea, especially for the photo opportunities. It's tough to get a *bad* picture of the sand dunes - I look back at my own, daytime photos and am still amazed by how beautiful they are. Google Image "sand dunes" "full moon" for a peek at what you might be able to capture with the full moon! And the next one occurs... Thursday, April 25th - coinciding perfectly with your "last weekend in April" plans.
