DAY 289


Great Sand Dunes National Park

750 feet tall makes them the tallest dunes in North America located near Alamosa, Colorado

Highlights of the day:

  • found a couple treasures at a local flea market in Tesuque
  • amazing scenic drive to Taos
  • bought some crushed chilis, chili peppers, and salsa spice mix at a local stand
  • crossed the Rio Grande Gorge bridge, which puts the river in a different light (last stop in the great state of NM)
  • stopped at the Great Sand Dunes National Park near Alamosa, CO an hour and a half prior to sunset; Little Man climbed the entire distance to the top and I fell slighly short. (Wish we had more time there- a truly amazing phenomenon)
  • drove to Pueblo, CO where we found some lodging and finally had dinner at 9:30PM
