Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve
Just 35 miles northeast of Alamosa, Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve is set against a backdrop of rugged 14,000-foot peaks in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Hike North America's highest sand dunes and take in the views of the sweeping dunes, forests, cottonwood groves and tundra. Sandboarding or sledding back down is an exciting thrill that shouldn't be missed!
