@kateglass and I freezing our butts off with some nice refreshing Coronas with lime. This is from a few weeks ago when I truly thought I might freeze to death in a tent in Colorado. It might not look like it but it was 20°F and the wind was insane. We slept with our jackets on, and when I woke up I still had my gloves on. A nice layer of sand lined the tent, the wind was so strong there was no way to keep the sand out. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #greatsanddunes #colorado #camping #tentlife #greatsanddunesnationalpark #travelgram #nationalparks #optoutside #theoutbound #travelamerica #adventuregram #thenationalparkspass #adventureisoutthere #corona #tent #travelphotography #visitcolorado #thedunes #travel #exploreamerica

I really feel like surfing those dunes again! It was super fun! Plus, it’s cold and grey here now and look at the weather we had just weeks ago at the great sand dunes... . . . . . . . #holiday #greatsanddunes #greatsanddunesnationalpark #utah #surfing #sandsurfing

Over the weekend we explored our 19th National Park: Great Sand Dunes! The park is home to 5 dunes over 700ft, including the highest dune in North America. We had WAY too much fun climbing and running down the dunes and it’s all on today’s vlog!

| Because the greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way. There’s truly nothing like traveling with your favorite people. 🧡☁️✨

It was a great camping and would be fantastic if i got Tripod then. The camera angle is still beautiful though. Photo was taken from Great Sand Dunes on July 4th. Others polluted Sky with Fireworks. This is my natural firework. #astrophotography #Light #photography #GreatSandDunes #Throwback #milkyway

I put together a photo series of my favorite images from over a thousand days living in wild Colorado. I’ll post a handful of them on here over the next while, but personally I think they look best on a bigger screen. Feel free to navigate your browser on the World Wide Web to brianwlackey.com/colorado for a taste. This shot, along with one other in the series, was taken at Great Sand Dunes National Park in April of 2017. Definitely one of my all-time favorites.

For some reason that I don’t know, I can’t look to this photo without this part of the song sings in my head... “Before I missed out on all this love, and watch me roll away again Watch me disappear up under my skin I don't believe it that things could get any worse than they did that time You must have seen it I mean how could we get lost running in a straight line Your cries of why's and why not's, may it all get back to you” -running by Jason Mraz #greatsanddunes #colorado #jasonmrazsong

It was the last day of our 2 month road-trip living out of my Honda Civic. It had snowed the night before, with temps in the low 20s, and tent camping was getting tough. Crystal booked a flight for that afternoon, and more snow was on the way, but we had one last park to check off the list: Great Sand Dunes. We arrived when the park opened and made it our goal to summit the tallest dune we could see, and then race back down and to the airport. We got down just as the weather was hitting; a fitting end for a wild trip. 📸: @cnic29

Great Sand Dunes National Park is amazing!!! The highest dune is 700 ft. Climbing the sand was tough, but totally worth it! The sunrise and sunsets are 🤯.

Rain moving in over the dunes. I didn’t get the color I wanted in the clouds, but I’m really proud of my framing in this shot. The scale of the dunes is hard to capture, and I really wanted to show how big they actually are, with the creek flowing around them and clouds hanging low in the sky.

The Sahara. A hostile place where only a few species can survive. The largest hot desert in the world, about the size of China. A place of immense fascination for many people drawn to the vast sand dunes reaching as far as the eye can see. A place I finally got to visit here in Morocco. This photo is from the outskirts of the village Hassilabied, a village bordering the magnificent sand dunes of Erg Chebbi.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | The wild and abstract landscape of Great Sand Dunes National Park near Alamosa, Colorado, never gets old. For many years I went skiing on the dunes each Thanksgiving with friends. Whether you are hiking, skiing, snowboarding, or photographing the dunes, the constantly changing landscape is always an entertaining playground. The area is frigid in the winter mornings and warm in the afternoons, so be prepared for anything—even snow. #greatsanddunes #colorado #mountains #beautiful #beautifuldestinations #beautifulplaces #mountains #mountain_world

“Wanna be happy? Have zero expectations.’’ -Gary Vee | If you need a boost or something new in your ears for Monday I highly recommend checking out @garyvee podcasts (also, it's not for everyone). We’re all innately very capable of achieving more, doing more and reaching greater heights — but what do you do to push yourself to that next level? Listening to countless Gary Vee podcasts has taught me to harness my restless energy into a driving creative force. This quote is simple to read but can be challenging to live by as we all have expectations for ourselves, our careers, our creative passions and maybe sometimes other people. Stop doing that sh*t and you’ll be a lot happier… focus on what you can control, yourself… and let the rest be.

Everyday at Great Sand Dunes I went out to catch the light and shadows on the dunes at sunset. Everyday there were clouds and storms at sunset.

Took a trip out to Great Sand Dunes National Park today! Had the absolute BEST time! Such a fun place! The hike up is a bit difficult but running down the ridges of the dunes and rolling in the sand was so much fun! One of my favorite National Parks!
