How is this place not awesome?
There is nothing like it and its a gem located all the way down in south of Colorado.
Drove hours after a flight from Houston and it was worth it. The view was breathtaking.
Great Sand Dunes entrance fee is only $3 per person. Always remember to check the weather and not go during storm/rainy days. Its too risky.
This place is huge and the hiking is a bit difficult. Make sure you wear appropriate clothing and shoes. I was a idiot not to. Oh and get prepared to be sandblasted! I recommend to bring a towel in case there is a wind and you would want to protect yourself from the sand in your eyes or being sand blasted all over your naked legs (If you are wearing shorts). You can even bring a ski mask or sunglasses to protect yourself. Remember to wear sunscreen too!
If you stop by Great Sand Dunes Oasis you can rent out Sandboards or Sandsleds for only $21 (includes tax) and get some breakfast.
I really wish I could of camped out here but my road trip had limited days so I was already set off to my next adventure.
