One of the biggest surprises for Oklahoma visitors is its walking hills, an area of shifting sands and desert-like dunes. Made up of vast deposits of well-sorted quartz, the dunes are remnants of a prehistoric era when the Cimarron River washed over the entire area. A series of long flowing dunes, created about 11,000 years ago, make up today's Little Sahara State Park.
