If you are looking for something fun and different to do on your elope-cation, the Great Sand Dunes National Park offers couples many outdoor options. These sand dunes are the tallest in the United States…and definitely located at the highest elevation.
Dave and I first visited them in the summer of 2011 and fell in love. Our dogs enjoyed romping in the stream at the base and we spent an hour watching folks sandboard down the slopes and make their way to the top of the stellar peaks.
The Sand Dunes offer backpacking/camping/hiking for those who are looking to do something other than gaze.
Located about an hour from Saguache.
Here is a photo of the dunes in the winter. 🙂
