Ever since I saw The Great Sand Dunes on Instagram I was enamored with the idea of seeing them. A desert in the mountains sounded intriguing. My boyfriend travels a lot for his job. We were making the drive back to OKC from Seattle and I begged Ryan to take us by here on our way home. It was more striking in person than it was in pictures as most things are. We didn’t have much time to explore but it was worth the drive on mountainous state highways to get there.
