Great Sand Dunes
In an out-of-the-way
corner of south-central Colorado lies Great Sand Dunes National Park.
The park and preserve contains the tallest sand dune on the continent
(around 750 feet), and stretches across 41,686 acres of the San Luis
Valley. The wind has slowly and continuously deposited the sands from
an ancient lakebed into this corner of the valley, which mixes with
the sand eroded from the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range, by the tributaries
of the Rio Grande River. There is evidence of human activity in the
park dating back 11,000 years with artifacts from the Clovis culture.
