Great Sand Dunes National Park And Preserve Panorama Art

This is a very large eighteen image panorama view of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.  Scenic landscape of the plains meeting the dunes and the snow covered springtime Colorado Rocky Mountains.   Park elevations range from 7,515 feet to 13,604 feet above sea level. In the summer, the sand surface can reach 150°F

There are several streams flowing on the perimeter of the dunes. The streams erode the edge of the dune field, and sand is carried downstream. The water disappears into the ground, depositing sand on the surface. Winds pick up the deposits of sand, and blow them up onto the dune field once again.

Digging a couple inches into the dunes even at their peaks reveals wet sand. Part of the motivation of turning the Monument into a National Park was the extra protection of the water, which Colorado’s cities and agriculture covet.
