You can travel the highways and its a great day trip or you can rent or bring atvs to explore "Medrano Pass" a for wheeling favorite
Amazing sand dunes in the middle of the mountains... something you don't want to miss! South of Salida in the San Luis Valley, this is worth the drive.
Unbelievable spectacle of nature. Best to go in when Medano Creek is in motion, usually May into June, as the winter's snow melts off.
A great day trip, beautiful scenery over LaVeta Pass and the San Louis Valley. Start out early morning so u can take your time. Bring a picnic lunch or stop in Fort Garland to eat. Ask me if you need any ideas for ur trip that u maybe interested in.
The dunes are beautiful but I especially love the trails in the park/preserve! Go explore!

“Come to New Moon and Full Moon ceremonies at this Hindu Ashram. You need to be there 9:50, preferably with an empty stomach for respect for the Goddess and God's. At 10am they start an outdoor fire ceremony, followed by bhajans (singing) in the shrine room. Everybody is invited after to a fabulous meal in their Earth Ship main house. Here you can find lovely Indian gifts and great deals on Sari's and Indian dress. ”
