Last week, Eddie and I took a field trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. His old school mates were all going on that particular day, so we decided we would meet up with them. I am not necessarily Eddie's first pick for a buddy to scramble up those dunes with; especially since I don't really "scramble" any more; its more like "I sit on the blanket in the warm sun, while he scrambles". So it worked out nicely for both of us, that they picked the same day for the same field trip. (As you might have guessed, we actually planned our day around theirs). We had a lovely time and brought along a soccer ball, a picnic and "Tobby Mack" our little dog. The sand dunes are an interesting sight to see. They are like a mini Sahara Desert right in the Rocky Mountains. I am not sure how the "Evolutionists" try to explain them, but one possible explanation that we "Creationists" have is that it is remnants of "Noah's Flood".
If you click to enlarge the picture, you can see how big the dunes are compared to the little specks on them, which are people climbing up and down them.
We had a great time and even though our sunshine turned into cloudy skies, we were not held back in any way. Eddie climbed to the second to the highest dune; I hiked over the creek and laid out the blank and kicked back with Toby.
