The Great Sand Dunes National Park contains the tallest dunes in North America, and their backdrop is the stunning Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Everything from landscapes to abstract black and whites to astrophotography is in plentiful supply here.

Google will get you to the national park. There's really only one main parking lot, so it's hard to miss. I'd recommend avoiding the straightforward path to the High Dune and instead veer left (southwest) from the parking lot to avoid footprints. Most people just go straight for the High Dune and leave footprints that can ruin some of those abstract shots. If you either go past the High Dune or stay to the left to start, you'll have better luck.
