Waves Of Time

Visiting the Great Sand Dunes National Preserve was one of my most anticipated stops during our trip to Colorado. I can’t even begin to describe how small you might feel when standing and viewing a vista such as this. The location that my feet were planted is well over one mile higher than the very top of the Sears Tower in Chicago. The mountains on the far right horizon are nearly fifty miles away and the snow covered peak at center (Mount Blanca) rises nearly another mile above my feet.
