While at the Medano Zapata Ranch we headed over to the Great Sand Dunes National Park for some early morning painting. The Great Sand Dunes are nestled against the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and are a natural system that includes high mountain peaks, sparkling streams (although pretty low right now), powerful winds and of course sand. This wild landscape is unexpectedly awe-inspiring.
I set up right in the stream bed.
These huge dunes are the tallest in North America. They comprise about 11 percent of
an enormous sand deposit that covers more than 330 square miles.
We were set-up and painting by 7:00 and were soon followed by climbers seeking the top
and looking forward to the thrill of sliding down. Many use a plastic snow sled or
big piece of cardboard.
