It was late June and the weekend forecast was for rain and snow almost all over Colorado, but we wanted to go hiking. Our solution? A memorable road trip to Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve.
Trail Ridge Road stretches 48 miles from Estes Park on the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park to Grand Lake on the west side. Built in 1932, this scenic byway climbs over 4,000 feet up from Estes Park quickly and winds through amazing mountain landscapes. It is a great destination to visit.
