Didja know Colorado has huge ass sand dunes? Now ya do! We took a weekend trip to check ’em out and take some pics. They’re about 4 hours south of Denver and in the middle of nowhere. Seriously, middle of nowhere. And even being out in the middle of nowhere, I still heard my voice in a commercial I’d done for Commercial Success for whatever tiny market it was playing from. Weird.
Anywho, this place is awesome! There’s no way any camera can capture how huge this place is. The only other living thing we saw was a few other people sledding down the dunes. No birds, no sounds, nothing.
Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the top of one of the biggest dunes so I could get some super awesome shots. Climbing uphill in nothing but sand is hard, very hard. Not to mention we were already over 8,000 feet above sea level. I’m sad we made it over halfway up and gave up…but we chose not to die today. We’ll attempt it again another time.
Being a sh*tload of sand, there’s not much else to take pics of but footprints. So there’s a lot of those. And pics of Mike to show perspective, otherwise you could never really appreciate how freaking big this place is.
