Great Sand Dunes NP
Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve - July 27, 2008
View from High Dune to the north
Taken the morning after a heavy rain which made hiking much easier
and rewarded us with dune formations like this one
Truly one of my favorite pictures ever!

I agree! This was definitely worth flying across the country, driving four hours and putting up a tent in the rain to experience!

Thank you so much for your words!

I went here when there was no rain, and the sand was very very hot!
Beautiful picture!

This was my second time at the dunes and at first I worried because of the rain but it turned out to be a real help. I know what you mean about HOT SAND!

Thanks for your kind words!

Yes, my dad put on sandals, and he had to go back to the car to get tennis shoes once the hot sand got into the sandals, the sand was too hot! Have you ever been to the White Sands?
Your Welcome,
Wiktoria

No I haven't but I hope to some day!

I've been burned a few times by beach sands here along the east coast in the summer; learned the hard way.

Thank you - I was very happy to catch the dunes after a heavy rain the night before making it easier to get up to the top.
