Great Sand Dunes National Park

Spectacular natural beauty and a playground for kids of all ages. Great Sand Dunes National Park is definitely on my "repeat visit" list.

Click to enlarge and you'll see little specks all the way up the dunes. Those are people.

Behind Kel is the river that you had to cross in order to reach the dunes. Shoes off!

We attended a short ranger programme where the kids were learning about the mineral composition of sediments in the park.

Nic and Mom out on the dunes.

Emptying the sand from his shoe. Again.

Kel and I had some great dune rolls. When we got back to the hotel that night, there was sand coming out of every item of our clothing. I mean every item.
