Great Sand Dunes National Monument

Great Sand Dunes National Monument is one of south central Colorado's most intriguing geological features. The area boasts North America's tallest natural sand dunes that rise over 750'. They are situated in the San Luis Valley at the base of snow capped peaks, which soar high into the clear blue Colorado sky.

Cherry Creek State Park - second visit

We visited Cherry Creek State Park just outside of Denver, CO, again this season, but this time we camped with a local RV group. We had a great time meeting new friends and all their dogs. The canines literally outnumbered the humans on this trip - that took some getting used to :-).
