Road trip - day 3

If you ever needed convincing of the enormous diversity of Colorado, I can think of no better example than the Great Sand Dunes National Park which we visited today.

Here are several square miles of 750 ft high sand dunes sitting in an alpine valley at the base of snow capped peaks.

After the dunes we also visited San Juan, the oldest town in Colorado and stopped for lunch in Taos. We also visited Santuario de Chimayo which is a major pilgrimmage site, especially around Easter.

You can see our route for today on the map below.
