Great Sand Dunes

Dunes Exploration in Great Sand Dunes National Park is nothing short of awesome! Make sure to try "dune boarding." The park says "Explore any part of the 30 square mile dunefield you wish; there are no designated trails in the sand. A dunes-accessible wheelchair is available for free loan at the Visitor Center. In summer months, plan to hike the dunes in morning or evening to avoid sand temperatures reaching up to 150 degrees F." There is camping available in Great Sand Dunes National Park. For those interested in backcountry camping a permit is required.
