Great Sand Dunes - Coming Down

Walking down the Great Sand Dunes is a lot easier than walking up!

The parking lot is a long way down.

On the way down Mark was demonstrating angle of repose. 

To get to the bottom we just dug in our heals and started walking.

We didn’t see the Great Sand Dunes tiger beetle but it is interesting to note that the sand gets to 140° F!

After our walk on the dunes we walked a short 1/2 mile hike on the Montville Trail.

This is one of the views from the top.

We enjoyed our day.  We’ll be coming back to this area to explore some more.
