Back in 2003 when Kevin and I went on our Grand Canyon adventure, DesertDave told us about Great Sand Dunes National Park. Alas, we didn't have time to check it out. Since moving to New Mexico in 2010, I've passed the park a few times while driving to and from Omaha, and in August of 2011 I finally had a chance to visit. The rest of the family was out of town at a wedding, so I packed up the car and made an overnight trip to the park.
