Fun at Great Sand Dunes NP

Angela, Jen (acting foolish), Kayla, Rosie, and Galen in the Dunes. 

A Sand Man!  The teeny little people give you some idea of how huge the Dunes are.

Looking back over the dunes we have just hiked over.

The plan:  Angela went to the bottom of the dune so she could photograph Kayla and Jen sliding down the dune but they didn't slide so scooted down to the bottom.

What goes down must come up.  We were lucky that it had rained the night before making the dunes a bit easier to climb and it was cloudy so it was cool.  But it was still not an easy climb especially if you, like Angela, had just gone from an altitude of less than 800' to 7800'.

Galen to the rescue.

Made it!  Sort of.  :-)

Medano Creek was still running which was a nice surprise.
