At the edge of the Valley of Silence, the landscape changes so suddenly it's like strolling to another continent – from a placid, fragrant pine forest to a soaring wall of brown sand.A short but steep 52-meter vertical climb to the top of the Parnidis Dune – known as "Lithuania's Sahara – reveals a sweeping view of a remarkable and soothing landscape, the Curonian Spit.As narrow as 400 meters, thickly forested and thinly inhabited, the spit is a refuge flanked by the smooth lagoon on one side and the blustery Baltic Sea on the other.This June 23, 2014 photo shows the Baltic Sea near sundown from the top of dunes at Nida on Lithuania's Curonian Spit.
