MOSCA, CO - JUNE 20: Footprints lead towards the top of the dunes at the Great Sand Dunes on June 20, 2019 in Mosca, Colorado. Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is known for huge dunes like the towering Star Dune, and for the seasonal Medano Creek and beach created at the base of the dunes. These sand dunes are the tallest dunes in North America. They are shaped by the forces of wind and water and are continuously moving and shifting. The dunes comprise 30 square miles of dunes, 750 ft elevation gains and average hike times to the top of the dunes is 2 hours. Also in the area is the backcountry Medano Pass Primitive Road winds through a canyon toward the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Trails lead to forests, wetlands and alpine lakes like Medano Lake, which is home to trout and tundra wildlife. (Photo by Helen H. Richardson/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Getty Images)

We live in the most beautiful state here in Colorado.  Reader’s Digest just compiled a list of the top family destination per state.

For Colorado, the winner was….Sand Dunes National Park!  

Why?

The beautiful soft sand dunes are perfect for….sledding!  Plus surfing the dunes.  So cool!

It has been on my Colorado bucket list for a long time, but I haven’t gone yet.
