Great Sand Dunes National Park

 
 

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, located in southern Colorado, is one of our newest national parks. The park features the nation’s highest sand dunes – towering 750 feet against the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The dunes are unspeakably beautiful, and even contain creeks that flow on top of the sand. The park also features a diverse range of plants and animals, and some insects found no where else on Earth.
