GREAT SAND DUNES
Located in southern Colorado about 75 miles west of Walsenburg, Great Sand Dunes offers an extremely unique combination of landscapes for you to experience. Massive sand dunes with a backdrop of snowy peaks (Sangre de Cristo mountain range with elevations over 14,000 feet) will leave you wondering where you just landed…but wanting more. Bison, elk, bighorn sheep, black bear and many other species can be found in the surrounding wilderness and forest, so don’t forget to bring your binoculars and cameras. Surrounded by multiple towns within an hour’s drive, you won’t have too many problems finding nearby accommodations for an extended stay. And did we mention that the night sky will come alive like you might have never experienced? Very little light pollution will draw you to stay around after dark to view the Milky Way like you’ve never seen it before!
