Today we went to Great Sand Dunes National Park. When we got there we went straight to the camp ground to make sure we got a site. After we set up our tent we went to the Visitor Center and watched the movie. We also asked the ranger if the creek was high enough to swim in. There was not enough water and it is full of black ash. So we did not swim. Instead we decided to climb the high dune. It was really hard because every time we put our feet down they slid a back couple of inches. It took us an hour and 20 minutes to walk the 1.5 miles to the top of the sand dune. They call it High Dune but it is not the tallest dune in the park. At the top of the dune the wind was blowing sand really hard and it hurt when the sand hit me. Going back down was easier. I tried to sled down some of the dunes on the food bin lid it did not work. I ended up rolling down the dune. After I climbed back up we walked back to the car and went back to the camp ground to eat dinner. Tomorrow we are going to drive for 12 hours.
