Great Sand Dunes Hike

While Susan and I were down in the San Luis Valley for Cranefest, we took advantage of a gorgeous sunny day to hike again in Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve (GRSA).

GRSA has the tallest dunes in North America, and we bagged one of the highest ones, at about 650 feet in elevation. There was some recent snow on the dunes, but it was melting rapidly in the 40+ degree sunny weather.

Here are some pictures from the hike (click on slide show to see the larger album).
