David had a small window of time off from his busy work schedule and suggested we make the drive to an alligator farm and to the Great Sand Dunes, a National Park, located in Colorado.
It was a bit of a drive for us, but the Rockies are so glorious we hardly noticed the time.
Colorado in the winter is a skiers heaven, but Colorado in the summer is a nature lover's dream!
Everything was green, waterfalls were tumbling down rocky crags, and the tip tops of the mountains had traces of pure white snow.
Upon arriving at the dunes, we were transported to a desert land from far away-
a story book Aladdin experience!
