Greetings from Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve!

Great Sand Dunes in Colorado took my breath away both figuratively and literally (we live near the Texas coast). The dunes are a true wonder with their tan soaring peaks in contrast to the surrounding jagged mountains. I love this place. It's unlike anyplace I've ever been. Driving up to the park, be prepared for an amazing sight. Sand dunes out of nowhere.



P.S. I support the parks because… Americans with a vision of preserving our unique and diverse land thought it important enough to create the National Park Service in 1916. I thank everyone since then and future patrons for their commitment to maintaining and protecting these wonders of nature.
