"Sand, sand, sand. In Colorado???" Great Sand Dunes National Monument by OlenaKyiv

For long time I dreamt about coming to Sand Dunes. For me it was hard to believe, what that mean to have a desert of sandy mountains in the state of tall mountains with snow on the tops, Colorado. After 4 hour travel from Denver we reached Sand Dunes and my eyes finally saw this miracle. I would not say that there were something extraordinary Dunes, but just the magic of nature is enough to open a mouth while watching a desert in high altitude of Colorado.
