Alligators & Sand Dunes

When you think Colorado, you probably don't think alligators and sand dunes. Yet, within a twenty minute drive of my campsite, I discovered both.

Colorado Gators Reptile Park - is a family owned park that has a surprising variety of reptiles and other critters. As soon as you enter the facility, you are met with a reassuring sign regarding your safety...

And just in case this retirement thing does not work out, I have added "Gator Wrangler" to my resume...

More critters...

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve - protects the tallest sand dunes in North America. Be sure to visit their website to learn how these dunes were formed.

Note how small the people in the foreground of the photo look as compared to the dunes
