Stretched below the 13,000 foot Sangre de Cristo mountains in Colorado, these dunes reach a height of 750 feet from the base. Created mostly from swirling wind, the Great Sand Dunes offered an immense calm for our hike.
Sand created by wind and time.
Setting her watch for the hike
Just part way up the Dunes
She is way up there.
From a few miles back
Landscapes sit with the Sangre de Criston mountains looming behind them.
This could be a watercolor painting.
All smiles and a selfie.
