Great Sand Dunes

It was my third time to return to Great Sand Dunes, each time in the spring, when the weather is unpredictable, the wind can be volatile, and it displays its many moods. It can calm and serene in the morning and in the afternoon the wind can stir the sands into a storm.

  1. Beautiful. I love open spaces. And I could go look it up, but considering my sporadic electricity and fluctuating bandwidth in Mozambique, I’ll just ask: where are these dunes? CO?
