Deer at the Dunes

A deer poses for a picture at Great Sand Dunes National Park. The snow capped mountain in the background is Mount Herard.

The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America, rising about 750 feet (230 m) from the floor of the San Luis Valley on the western base of the Sangre de Cristo Range, covering about 19,000 acres (7,700 ha). The dunes started forming less than 440,000 years ago
