Great Sand Dunes National Park

I have always wanted to visit Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, but never had the chance until August 2018 when we took a road trip west. We've visite Jockey's Ridge State Park in NC, the tallest active sand dunes in the US, and were expecting something simmilar in Colorado. We were not expecting the shere size of the sand dunes in the park. Jockey's Ridge covers 426 acres,whereas the Great Sand Dunes cover about about 30 square miles and the tallest due is about 750 feet high.
