Sand in My Shoes - The Great Sand Dunes of Colorado

With each season, each day, each wind shift – a new form emerges, what was previously hidden is now revealed. For 440,000 years the sands have been washed down stream and laid to dry. Like helping a friend in need, the winds return the sand to its cove at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Range. Westerly winds bring new sands across the high Colorado deserts, but the power needed to carry the sand over the immense mountain range fails. A new layer is added, another dune is formed, continuing the ancient cycle of growth and change.
