I was surprised by the height of the dunes (they're the tallest in North America) and was fascinated by the way they are constantly moving, thanks to the wind. Prior to visiting this park, my only experience with dunes had been along the Great Lakes or the Atlantic Ocean. What a pleasant surprise to discover that I only had to travel a couple hundred miles to see them.
If you'd like to learn more about the dunes and the other parts of this park/ preserve, here's the link.
I hope you've enjoyed this month's posts about Colorado. Next month we'll return to Wyoming.
