Playing at the Dunes

February 2, 2009

A recent trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Reserve. This is my 3rd trip here and find something new each time. Believed to be approximately 440,000 years old, these dunes are nestled in San Louis Valley, between the San Juan and Sangre de Cristo Mountain ranges.

Great Jump

I had just broken my toe before this trip, but I fought through the pain to hike and take the great leap……

  1. I really like the first two images here and don’t quite know what to make of the last! All are very creative. Well done.

    Yes,, the dunes are that wonderful. It is always a stop when I am road tripping through Colorado. I will have to post the other random photo’s from that trip.
