Great Sand Dunes

The Great Sands Dunes National Park and Preserve located out in the middle of nowhere, Mosca, Colorado was awesome. Wednesday evening was cloudy overcast with thunderstorms headed our way. I started to walk out towards the dunes (which are 3/10 of a mile from the parking lot) But the sound of thunder and the flashes of lightning convinced me to wait til morning. Thursday morning brought clear skies and a lot more water in Medano Creek. Not wanting to over do myself I only walked to the top of the first dune. The sand was actually firmer than I expected. There were kids out there with boogie boards riding down the dunes. Looked like fun.
