Great Sand Dunes National Park by harbie

Great Sand Dunes National Park

We hiked to the top of one of the taller dunes (approximately 733 ft) to take this photo. It is hard to see the depth in the photo, but the dunes are much larger than they look. I will post another photo with a person so you can get a perspective of height. This photo I wanted to show how the dunes look against the mountains. We had a great time camping the last few days. Thanks so much for viewing!
splendid!

This is the most remarkable place - we stopped there once - unfortunately before I was much into photography - it would have been a field day. Love the way you captured the dunes.

And yes, I remember they are MUCH larger than they appear. I was pooped!

@trinda Thanks, Trinda! They don't allow dune buggies but you can bring or rent snow boards for the sand. People then sled down the sand. I will try to post a shot of this!

@chard It definitely is a great place to visit in June before it is too hot and the water stops running!
