As Oscar & I departed the Great Sand Dune National Park, we stopped to look back and take this picture. Out of the middle of nowhere, a 700 ft tall sand dune rises above the floor of the plateau between two mountain ranges. It speaks to eras gone by when this was an ocean . . . unreal!
Then as we crossed the 11332 ft Monarch Pass we were blessed with this splendid display of color from the Aspens on the mountainside.
We have arrived at our initial destination in Gunnison Colorado where I shall try my hand at fly fishing for a week . . . I'll return to the trailer each evening with wonderful stories to share with Oscar and I'm sure his eyes will roll into the back of his head as he says "Yeah, sure Pete, tell me again how big it was?" (He's such a sceptic.)
