2018 Great Sand Dunes
We just came back from a week-long trip around southern Colorado. The first stop at Mesa Verde National Park, then Pagosa Springs. The third stop was the Great Sand Dunes National Park. We stayed at the San Luis Wildlife Refuge, which is just west of the NP. It used to be a state park, so it has full electrical, but no water or sewer. So we made sure to fill up before arriving.
One of the great attractions of the Sand Dunes at this time of year is the river running alongside the dunes. It usually flows past the the main parking lot this time of year, and dries up in late June. However, because of the drought in this part of the country, the river dried up the middle of May. But, what most people do not know, is that if you have a 4 wheel drive truck, which we do, you can take a jeep trail to where this still is water. So we got to play in the river after all.
