Dror Baron: Sand Dunes (8.2003)

Our next stop was at Great Sand Dunes National Park. This park features massive sand dunes surrounded by lush green mountains. Apparently the structure of the local valley has trapped in sand, which is blown in.

As described earlier, we had decided to gradually build up our resistance to the higher elevations. We went on hike on one of the surrounding mountains, which was covered in flowers.

The mountains are also covered in trees, and here we can see the dunes in the distant background.

The dunes themselves are quite spectacular.
