Adventure Scrapbook – Great Sand Dunes

You can find the tallest dunes in North America at Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. This amazing and unique national park is located at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Colorado. There are no trails in the dune fields since the shifting sand would quickly make them disappear. Visitors can hike anywhere on the dunes as their footprints will also vanish. The park is open twenty-four hours a day year-round, but it can be very hot in the summer and cold in the winter, so plan accordingly. If you haven’t hiked in sand before, take plenty of water and don’t over-estimate your ability. Each step in sand takes more effort than a step on a solid surface and can be very tiring.
