Great Sand Dunes NP - sunset

The weather got pretty bad on the second day of our stay at the Grand Sand Dunes NP, and because of that we were almost ready to leave the park a day earlier. But then the park is so beautiful that we decided to stay there despite the approaching storm.

Hiking in the dunes during the thunderstorm is dangerous, so instead we went for a ride. We got rewarded with this beautiful double rainbow:

After a ride we went to watch sunset over dunes. Unfortunately, there were so many clouds that we could not see the sun:

Instead we saw a big group of deer eating dinner:

The views of the dunes from our campground were also amazing:
