A Sandy Summit by Jacob-Routzahn A Sandy Summit by Jacob-Routzahn
As the clouds pass by, Jasper and I enjoy the view from the top of High Dune, the tallest sand dune in North America at 750 ft (230 m). Not only is the top a great place for a view, but it is also a great place to get blasted by the afternoon winds and sand. But with a view like this, the little hike and getting sand blasted was worth it.

Jasper and I had a great time watching the clouds roll by. They create so many shifting shapes over the sand and watching them roll around the mountain tops was something special too. Such a peaceful and quite place this is. Actually, it is so quite that is has been rated the quietest national park in the lower 48.

Great shot! Wish I'd gotten there when I lived in Denver.

Actually High Dune is 650 feet and Star Dune is the tallest at 750 feet according to the NPS. :-)

I hope to make it out within the next year or so..my stepmom and her husband and my cute little stepbrother (dog...stepdog?) live in Denver and it's been forevs since I've seen 'em :( Too many places to go, too little time and not enough money. C'est la vie, you know.
