My new wife and I visited here on our honeymoon in summer of 1997.
Cool place, looks like your on a different planet. Fun to jump down the huge dunes.
Drove from Denver to the campground. We saw a huge tornado on the road. Hiked up to High Dune with Boris and Karina. One of my best trips ever.!
Came here on Christmas Day and it was freezing and so windy! I loved every moment of it though. It's like walking on another world. The scenery around the dunes is incredible too, especially once you wander up to the high point.
Love the dunes. What an unexpected place in the heart of the rocky mountains . The dunes can get awfully hot in the summer (hot enough to burn skin) and the moving sand can really sting. Also love the hummingbirds.
Been here twice - 2000 and 2008 and found that I like it best after a rain when the sand is damp and hiking up the dunes is easiest! This is an amazing place to visit and camp at!
