Great Sand Dunes NP&P 5, CO.

Well folks, this time last year I was camping at this NP&P in SE CO. and watching a cool front storm approaching over the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. The next morning I was sitting in my camp chair relaxing and having tailgate coffee after a little shooting of the dunes, when I noticed snow flurries coming down on top of me. It wasn't all that cold at ground level as the snow flakes dissolved as they hit the ground, but I thought it amusing to see snow in September..but then again it snow again on me in August on MT. Evans. I packed up in a light drizzle and left on day 3 or 4...I even got a refund for the night. It began to rain harder as I left the park and continued to rain the entire day as I headed south to Taos,NM.
