Yessir it is. The location is know as The Old Tunnel State Park. Trucks and roads were the technological advances of its day, obsoleting the railroad that served the farmers for so many years. The rails were pulled up to support the war effort during WWII. The tunnel has since become the seasonal home to an estimated 3,000,000 bats. The state park both protects the sanctuary and provides an opportunity for the public to observe the evening swarm as they go out to hunt insects each night while they are in residence. I found it amazing that each spring the colony returns with its pregnant females and when it is time for them to give birth, only they leave the colony for a maternity ward elsewhere in the countryside. They rejoin the colony with their infant pups. As dusk arrives, the nursing moms depart first to feed in the vicinity of the tunnel and the rest goes out a little later to forage further away. The tunnel is almost 1/2 mile long, the back end is on private property and not accessible. The trail in the park crosses the old rail bed in front of the tunnel, so this is the only real vantage point to see the tunnel. The trail is off limits in the evening so human presence won't interfere with their nightly exit.

OK, here's a super easy one. Probably won't have to give one clue.

Here is another clue to my post #882. A famous fault line runs through the area and this image of it is from there.

In that case, I say it is the International space station. Do they have yellow flowers and sand hill cranes on the ISS.

The problem I am having is that there is a whole bunch of National Wildlife Refuges up and down the length of California where Sand Hill Cranes winter or visit. Unfortunately the cranes apparently aren't there the same time as the yellow flowers

Ken

P.S. Is it the Coyote Ridge Trail?

At Great Sand Dunes the sand is grey. Never heard of the Kelso Dunes. These sand dunes are white. You don't have to think so hard.
