Toni Patanen, who has a total of one video uploaded to YouTube (spoilers: it is this one), made an ocarina out of a potato and played Sandstorm on it, just for us. Enjoy.
There's nothing that makes you feel smaller than an expanse of nothing but sand and sky. The White Sands National Monument in New Mexico is the largest gypsum dune field in the world. While this much normal sand isn't a rarity, gypsum's solubility in water means that it doesn't typically stick around for long.
