I’ll start with my most recent adventure… The Great Sand Dunes National Park. The trip to the sand dunes was a spur of the moment extension of my already one week vacation in Colorado. Long story short, I convinced my best friend to stay one extra day, so we drove two hours out of the way to see this place, and let me tell you it did not disappoint. I would recommend going early in the day, if you are not planning on staying the night in one of the neighboring towns. We ended up staying the night in a town about 30 minutes away called Alamosa.
