I couldn't get my lazy buddy to climb to the top so I had to settle for about half way up...snowboarded the dunes back down.

This place is simply amazing and I got a ton of great photos. Well worth walking up to the summit.

Needed something to do on a rest day besides Royal Gorge so I hit the dunes again. First time I was up on High Dune was in 2011; this time the wind was blowing hard and fast, making me wish I had brought goggles. By the time I hit the flat and looked behind me it was hard to tell where I had been. I'm sure that in an hour all my footprints ceased to exist.

The plan was to climb Ouray Peak today, but the kids had such a good time at the Sand Dunes that they wanted to stay there. We actually ended up climbing High Dune. It sure was a lot faster and easier to come down than it was to go up. After climbing the dune we quickly went down, but the kids wanted to climb another dune and run down, so I let them do so while I watched.

Hiked with Karina and Boris. One of my best trips ever. We spent a night at the campground and hiked up to High Dune the following day. We have more fun with the sled on the way down to the stream.

Climbed up on a windy and cloudy day. Very pleasant. Unique experience to be on top of a sand dune.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2009


Sludged up the cold morning sand to be the second to summit (behind Eleutheros). Spent a little while conversing with a family at the top (those kids had way too much energy!). Headed back just as the sand started to get hot. Beautiful views of the Sangres all around!

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2009
We climbed it in the later part of the day when the sun was low and got some great views of the dune field and mountains beyond. The wind was howling at times, and my calves hurt like crazy, but it was completely worth it.

I was the first to summit in the early morning. Dancing light and shadow brought the dunes to life beneath the awesome backdrop of the Sangres. I ran full speed downhill and only fell once! Found sandhoppers and sunflowers on the way. I also perfected the sandvalanche, a deep cracking and resulting cascade of sand that leaves a deep, ominous rumble echoing among the dunes.
