Great Sand Dunes National Park

We arrived at Great Sand Dunes National Park on a very windy afternoon.  The sun was out and it was a lovely temperature but when we thought of exploring the sand dunes in high winds, it didn’t sound too appealing.  Instead we decided to hang out in the campground, let the girls play, relax and catch up on some internet stuff like this blog.  Internet is fairly hard to come by so we try to take advantage when we do have it.

Boondocking at Upper Teton View BLM Campsite

The views were stunning and we got to have some much needed relaxation time.
