Since my other blog is working and I'm trying to scan some of my old slides in before they all loose their color, I'll use this blog for showing some of those slides.
I've been looking for slides of the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado. We visited there in early Spring, 1991. Many of the slides I took up on the dunes I've used in Slide Study Groups, and they unfortunately got separated and I haven't found them yet. Here's five that show it pretty well.
This is the way they look from a distance as you approach the dunes, with the mountain range in the back.
This is a little closer, but still a couple miles away.
This is a sign explaining about the creek and how it flows, especially in the Spring (it was when we were there). Unfortunately the slides all are loosing their color. I had to correct this one considerably to get it readable.
This is looking across the creek to the sand dunes. There's two black specks on the left–people just getting ready to climb. The distances there are very deceiving.
Here we're on our way back from the dunes. Shot taken by my wife, of Larry (Brother-In-law) and I. The water was freezing cold, and not very deep. But you can see how fast the current was. I decided to just walk with my boots on. Didn't even get my feet wet. When Larry was in above his ankles, I just jumped over that area. It was a wonderful day, and we were all tired (the gals didn't do any hiking though).
