The Highlight Of Echoing-Sand Mountain

Sand
On days when a strong wind blows, the fast shifting sand roars; but when the wind is little more than a light breeze, the sand produces gentle, dulcet sounds akin to music.  Some say that the sand is singing, while to others it is like an echo and this is how the mountain gets its name.
