THE GREAT SAND DUNES NATIONAL PARK
If you have ever thought of visiting the Great Sand Dunes, I promise it is worth the trip! None of the photos I had seen before could compare to climbing the dunes in person. It is breathtaking, like literally takes your breath away from hiking up them. I was getting used to hiking in Colorado, but hiking in deep, soft sand is WAY harder.
We decided to explore the dunes over Thanksgiving break. We camped at the nearby Zapata Falls Campground, which has stunning views of the valley below. This is one of my favorite campsites that I have ever been to!
The drive from the campground to the Great Sand Dunes is only about 10 minutes. The second day of our adventure we decided to explore the dunes. There are no actual trails on the dunes, so we just tried to pick the easiest route up! Here are some photos from the hike!
We also did a quick photo shoot for Belong Designs on top of the dunes! Here are some photos from the shoot!
If you want to check the Great Sand Dunes off your bucket list, then just do it! Stay at the Zapata Falls Campground for the best view of the stars and valley below!
