Matt Mahoney's 2009 Vacation - Part 3 - Sand Dunes

On Fri. June 26 I went to Sand Dunes National Park, about 150 miles south of Leadville. The dunes are at the southeast corner of the San Luis Valley at 8150 ft at the base of the dunes. These are the highest sand dunes in North America.

People climb High Dune, 650 ft. high.

View from High Dune. The first time I climbed it I forgot my camera so I went back and climbed it again to get this photo.

You cross a small stream to get to the dunes.
