Tijeras Peak, Great Sand Dunes National Preserve
NPS/Nicholas Scarborough

At 13,604 feet (4,146m), Tijeras Peak is the highest mountain in the park and preserve - but most visitors never notice it! It's hidden in a spectacular alpine basin northeast of the dunes, the watershed for Sand Creek. This wide-angle sunrise view with the moon was taken from Music Pass, primarily accessed from the east side of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Tijeras Peak is also visible from the northern half of the San Luis Valley, but it's not as dramatic from the west, just a high point on a sharp ridge. The east sides of the Rocky Mountains are where the most snow collects, and where glaciers carved tall cliffs and lakebeds.

A huge thank you to @westcliffecolorado for having me as a guest this week! Also couldn't miss an opportunity to drop a timelapse showcasing the gorgeous vista Bluff and Summit Park offers at the edge of Westcliffe, hands down one of the best views of the Sangres! 💬 & 📷: @coloradotimelapse

The Sangre de Cristo Mountains. I couldn't think of a more fitting name for this mountain range. The name alone evokes images of hidden treasures, endless adventures, and unforgettable scenery. I haven't explored the Sangres as much as I would like ,but they definitely don't disappoint in any of these aspects. 📷&💬: @coloradotimelapse

Three different types of sand make up the great sand dunes. The fine grained sand is volcanic and travels 50 miles on water and wind from the San Juan mountains. The coarse grained sand is washed down from the Sangre de Cristo Range. The black sand is actually the mineral Black Magnetite. We know that wind, water and the mountains have much to do with why the sand dunes are here, but scientists are still studying them to figure out exactly why and how they formed.

@coloradotimelapse here 🌲 Sometimes we fixate ourselves on the gear or technical aspects of photography, while sometimes all it takes to capture a fleeting moment is whatever camera we have on us and the perspective each one of us has of that moment. Great example in this capture by @falassions!

Snapped this shot as we headed back down "the Avenue" from Kit Carson (14,165 ft.) back towards Challenger Point (14,081 ft.). These two summits proved to be much more difficult to bag due to the snow conditions on the mountains. The snow was either a sheet of ice, which you needed to chop footholds with your ice axe, or feet of wind slabbed powder that breaks off if you look at it the wrong way. All in all summit day took us 15 hours from camp to camp. However, this route is one of the most drastic of all the Colorado 14ers with 6,250 ft. of elevation gain in 7.25 miles! #sonya6000 #sonyalpha #sonyalpha6000 #rei1440project #kitcarson #kitcarsonpeak #challenger #challengerpoint #sangredecristos #sangredecristomountains #crestone #colorado #14ers #colorado14ers #14er #hiking #climbing #backpacking #rei #sonya6000

Look at your life. Look at the ways in which you define who you are and what you're capable of achieving. Look at your goals. Look at the pressures applied by the people around you and the culture in which you were raised. Look again. And again. Keep looking until you realize, within your own experience, that you're so much more than who you believe you are. Keep looking until you find the wondrous heart, the marvelous mind, that is the very basis of your being. 💚

The traditional Ute word for the Great Sand Dunes is Saa waap maa nache, "sand that moves." Jicarilla Apaches settled in northern New Mexico and called the dunes Sei-anyedi, "it goes up and down." I call it my happy place. •••

Such a lovely, misty, soothing pause to balance all that sun and dry wind that we have so much of around here.

Soaking in some much needed yin!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, Love will hold you within our hearts... ~traditional blessing

Blanca Peak Alpenglow 
NPS/Patrick Myers

November is #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth, honoring the diverse cultures of American Indian tribes across the United States. Blanca Peak, located just south of Great Sand Dunes, is one of four sacred mountains to the Navajo (Dine') people. Called 'Sisnaajini' in their language ('Dawn' or 'White Shell' Mountain), many Navajo people visit the mountain each year. Learn more at:
