Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve

Great Sand Dunes (covering over thirty square miles of sand dunes) is a treasure of visual, geological, and biological surprises—a high mountain valley holding the tallest dunes (up to 750 feet) in North America and flanked by some of the highest peaks in the Rocky Mountains; unique wind-powered geologic systems; insects physically adapted to life in the sand and found nowhere else; alpine lakes and tundra; disappearing creeks; interdunal wetlands and much more!
