Early one morning we went to the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve ($3/adult – children are free) located in the San Luis Valley. http://www.nps.gov/grsa/index.htm

These are tallest dunes in North America at 750 feet (230 m) from the floor and covering about 19,000 acres. Researchers say that the dunes started forming less than 440,000 years ago.

It was fun to watch people “sand board” and “sand sled” down these dunes.
