This image is from Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado. It's a really beautiful place and also a lot of fun; I mean sand, water and mountains, what more do you need? It is such a unique place on the planet where the land formations and wind patterns work together to maintain this amazing dune field. Scientists study the dunes here to help them understand sand dunes they've discovered on Mars.
