From Cortez to Denver, with a side trip to Great Sand Dunes National Park.
Lot of smoke in the air early in the day from a couple wildfires burning in southern Colorado.
Cool, a snow shed!
The San Luis Valley leading to the Great Sand Dunes is huge...and flat. Took like an hour at 50mph to cross it.
It is some of the most populated farming country I've seen out west; it is particularly known for potatoes.
The Dune doesn't look that big...until it does. Holy crap it's big.
