Great Sand Dunes National Park


great-sand-dunes-np-patchGreat Sand Dunes National Park has the tallest dunes in North America! These dunes sit in the foreground of the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo and San Juan Mountains. As you approach the dunes on the road they appear to be a painted backdrop, it is difficult to convince yourself they are real! We climbed to the top (750 feet) and could see dunes going far into the distance (more than 330 square miles). Bring lots of water when you hike!
