Great Sand Dunes

National Park

That's a lot of sand!

The dune rises more than 700 feet (215 meters) above the valley floor.

A shallow stream provides fun for people of all ages.

It is a 1-mile walk to the top of the dune. But many people only go part way up to slide down.

The wind makes ever-changing patterns in the sand.

The wind is powerful!

The building blocks of the dunes -- grains of sand.
