After spending a month in southwestern South Dakota, it was time to make our way to Colorado. We had hoped to find somewhere to stay in Denver, but it just wasn’t in the cards. Our next option was Alamosa, CO and a visit to the Great Sand Dunes. We hope you enjoy our pictures and videos from our September 2018 trip to the dunes!

The Great Sand Dunes was FUN even though it was a really long walk to get to the dunes. I liked sledding down the tall dunes. The sand was really hot the first day we went to the dunes and I liked it much better the day we went in the evening when the sand wasn’t so hot.Allison
It was really fun and I liked sledding down the dunes. The only part I didn’t like was the long walk. If you go in the evening, the sand felt cool. Don’t bring your own disk to try to sled, rent one of the sand sleds because they work much better.Abigail
I didn’t really like the sand dunes that much because it was so hot the first day it made me have a bloody nose. Sledding down the dunes was fun, but not when it was so hot.Peyton
