There are deserts on all continants.

There is a reason, however, why MENA is associated with desert.



The MENA region is almost exclusively desert.

^ who invented dune bashing? i guess americans?
I've never seen it in on my visits to the West/Southwest US (I am sure people do it). It seems like a 'Saudi thing' to do though, given that the entire country is desert, petrol is cheap (perhaps cars are as well?) and there doesn't seem like a whole lot to do over there (no offense intended), given all of the restrictions that they have on various forms of entertainment.

I love Monument Valley Arizona, very similar to Saudi Arabia :banana:
















This is my favourite: Monument Valley at night, look at the stars

^^Come to Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve here in Colorado and you can see desert sand dunes with snow peaked mountains in the background:







Of course, the winter time is the best so that there is snow on the mountains. It adds to the contrast.

^^Definitely quite similar.

What's interesting about the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado is that they are just in one small area. It's like an anomaly. The sand dunes are all entirely in the National Park.

To the west, you have the grassy fields of the San Luis Valley and to the east, you have the Sangre de Cristo Mountains (part of the Rocky Mountains).
