great sand dunes

a trip to the san luis valley would not be complete without a journey to the great sand dunes national park, just east of alamosa. polly and i trudged through the sand, cameras in tow, in what felt like a pilgrimage to a grander, holier place. while we were not spiritually changed, polly did get some sweet super 8 footage and i got the following polaroids.
the whole experience was beautiful with the slight exception of a man with a remote control dune buggy. it made this obnoxious buzzing noise, seriously interrupting the serene natural setting. but polly got him on film so maybe it was all worth it.
