Great Sand Dunes
National Park & Preserve


Back to Photo Menu

Our second stopover during our vacation was here at the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve.  This is an amazing feature in Colorado located on the edge of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  They rise over 750 feet and are the tallest dunes in North America.  The dunes were formed from sand and silt from the Rio Grande River as well as continued erosion of the mountains.
