The Great Sand Dunes are a rare phenomenon, for millennia, water carried sand down the two mountain ranges, the Sangre de Cristos and the San Juan Mountains. The winds forcing the dunes upward can be over 40 mph, no wonder the traditional Ute word for the Great Sand Dunes is Saa waap maa nache, "sand that moves" and it is a sacred site for the indians in the area. The dunes definitely live up to their name, rising over 750 feet tall and covering over 30 square miles; they definitely are great.
