Great Sand Dunes National Park at sunset back in April | Throughout my time at this park, I definitely was chasing a feeling. I was solo, so I was left to my own devices on what to do and in what amount. Over a spread of 2 days, I went out into the Dunes about 4 separate occasions. My favorite part definitely wasn’t the hikes up these things, as you can imagine, it is pretty tough work. No, my favorite part was the effort to find a different view; a different dune. It’s truly quite amazing how these are each different in shape and size; watching as something as simple as the wind picks up and carries it’s shape somewhere new. #greatsanddunesnationalpark #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #natgeolandscape #landscapephotography #visitcolorado #colorado #exploretheworld

Finally got to go backpacking @greatsanddunesnps this past weekend. It was awesome to get to the north side of the park where very few travel and see a different view. The creek crossings, the pounding wind, the relentless sand everywhere. Everything I wanted.

Things that happen at the Sand Dunes: 1) going on a windy day means your skin will be sand blasted 2) sand will become deeply embedded in your eyes, hair, and mouth because of said wind 3) a hail storm and a dust storm will roll in at the same time???

E and I drove to Great Sand Dunes for 1 day to see the spring flow of Medano Creek. We are sunburnt, mosquito bitten, scraped, bruised, salty, sandy, hungry and happy.

Just out here ballin’ 😜🏐🏖 • Did you know? The largest sand dunes anywhere in the world are located in the southwest Colorado. Left there by wind and water more than, a million years ago. Some of the highest sand dunes average more than 700 feet high! • I’m so lucky to live in a state full of beautiful natural landscapes and constant surprises, a state so beautiful a third of its land is protected by the federal government. A state where every weekend trip feels like a vacation.

I live in an an Alpine High Dessert region of Colorado in the San Luis Valley. It is a vast, open space surrounded by mountains in all directions - lots of spectacular nature to explore and enjoy. The most unique natural feature in this area are the Great Sand Dunes. I’ve climbed these dunes in different seasons, camped on them and now with my little boy, I admire them from below splashing in Moreno Creek which runs at the foot of the dunes seasonally. . If you are planning to visit the area, camping at the National Park is magical. That campground does fill up quick though, especially in the summer. If you can’t get a spot in the actual park, soon you will be able to camp at the sculpture park that my partner @kylecunniffart and I are building. We plan to be more officially open in 2020 but hope to add a stay at our little A-Frame this July. It will be bookable via #hipcamp as soon as we get some more recent photos. . I’ll probably start a separate Instagram account for our park #mysticvalleysculpturepark More on that in a bit 😊 . I hope you all are enjoying the summer and are planning some fun adventures for the season! . . . . #sculpture #publicart #mosaicart #happycreativelife #coloradoartist #kasiapolkowska #coyotes #handmade #wildernessculture #sanluisvalley #colorfulart #kasiamosaics #glassart #sculpturepark #handmadewithlove #highdesertlife #sangredecristomountains #slv #greatsanddunesnationalpark #livecolorfully #mysticvalley

Those @vibram boots were made for walking, and that's precisely what they didn't do. On our way up the Great Sand Dunes @timmothie and I took the advice of a fellow hiker and left our boots behind because "it would be easier to walk through all the sand". Half way up the Dunes, our feet started to blister from the hot sand but we were too far to turn back!

Medano Creek flowing away from Mount Herard and through the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado. We took the 4WD road into the National Preserve to camp in the midst of an unrelenting wind. However difficult the night’s sleep may have been, it lead to waking up with the sun and having an absolutely beautiful morning watching low-hanging clouds speed down from the distant peaks as if we were watching a time lapse video and wisps of sand lick like flames from atop the tallest dunes in North America. What an absolute pleasure. • • • #nationalpark #greatsanddunesnationalpark #greatsanddunesnationalpreserve #publiclands

It is not easy traveling with a dog and a 1 yr old. It takes planning and patience, especially when you are part of a group. We decided to take Elle on her first tent camping trip. We were concerned about tempurture and weather but still tried. 4 hours in the car each way and a very cold second night did not effect her or our trip. She was so happy in nature. Our great friends helped with her and we even got a short break to have romance in the hot springs. I feel recharged and full of life #camping #roadtrip #friends #dog #wife #daughter #love #adventure #life #husband #father #dad #man #grateful #joyful #joyfuljourney #greatsanddunesnationalpark
