Deserts of the world: Great Sandy
Jun 1, 2006 - 03:59 PMCovering approximately 150,000 square miles, the Great Sandy Desert of western Australia is an uninhabited wilderness of scrub and rock. But it contains high red sand dunes that extend in miles of parallel rows, too.
This is also the name of an arid region in southern Oregon.
