Colorado Family Vacation: Part Two- Great National Sand Dunes

 The Great National Sand Dunes were one of those amazing places that you just have to see! Pictures don't do it justice. Such a fun morning exploring here! The sand is so smooth and just like the kind you would find at a beach in Florida, but these are in the valley between a river and mountains.

The river was so strange. Waves would form and rush at you then, it would be very shallow. 
The kids loved it- but it was COLD! 

The vastness of this place is hard to even describe. We hiked about 2 hours into it and didn't even touch the surface. People were like little black ants when we got to tops of ridges. It was just amazing. 

It was very windy! 

Do you see all those black specks behind Elijah? Those are people! 

There was an awfully lot of sand stuck in pockets/hoodies/underwear. It was hilarious! 
 If you are ever near Salida in Colorado- go check them out! You will NOT be disappointed.
