Great Sand Dunes National Park

While driving to the Grand Canyon, we came across this state park. I had never heard of it, but Paul had. It is literally big sand dunes in front of a mountain. 30 miles of sand dunes! It is incredible to look at and people climb to the top and sled down it, like snow. We didn't have that much time, so they only were able to climb a little ways up. At the bottom was a big stretch of wet sand with little "rivers" running through it that Sam had a great time playing in. It was amazing to look at that much sand- it was beautiful.

The long, endless road to the Grand Canyon.
