Great Sand Dunes

Home to the tallest sand dunes in North America, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is a must-see. The wind-shaped dunes rise over 750 feet creating a luminous contrast against the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The park protects a diverse landscape of dunes, grasslands, wetlands, forests, and alpine lakes over a span of 30 miles.
