The Great Sand Dunes from Lake San Luis

Jacob and Lois - Glad you made it home safely. That's a long trip. Great color in your shot of the [I assume] Aspen trees.

Re your comments on PCADP, yes, I think I did feel my ears burning on a couple of occasions in the last few weeks. And as far as the lights going out in Georgia, it wasn't funny at the time. I can laugh about it now tho.

I look forward to more great shots of Colorado. We lived in the Springs on three separate occasions when in the 80's.

Jacob, this will be fun. I lived for eight years in Palisade, on the other side of the Great Divide. Due to circumstances at the time, we didn't get over the mountains very often. It's an incredibly beautiful state, so I'm looking forward to seeing your photos. I think I like the idea of having a separate blog for a trip like this - but don't let me think too much about that idea!

Beautiful shot. I am looking forward to seeing more of Colorado.
We have dunes on the ocean and some in the interior of Wa. Interesting. MB

Can you believe the different layers here? Tree covered mountains, sand, vegetation, then water! Amazing!
I've never been to The Great Sand Dunes, but I've vacationed other places in Colorado! So very beautiful there!!!

The mountains are so incredible. I tried once to walk on those sand dunes and it ain't easy!

Beautiful sand dunes. I walked on sand dunes in WA - it's hard work going 'uphill'. Glad to see you're back safely from your holiday.

Brings back memories. We camped here at the Dunes when our kids were small. Had a great evening lecture and my son and DH made a hike up the dunes and back. Your photos are great!

Welcome home, Jacob and Louise. I'll be here to enjoy your gorgeous trip through your awesome lenses... And what a stunning way to start. 4000 miles is long - and my kind of road trip, for sure! - but you didn't have to go to Mongolia to get the stunning long views.
