Emily & Basil || Colorado Couple’s Session || Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve
Emily & Basil!
January of 2018 I hopped in a car to move my cousin Lauren out to Denver where she’d start another travel nursing contract. Leaving her in Colorado was a little easier than I had anticipated because her childhood friend, Emily and her husband, Basil reside there. I got to know these two well during my visit and asked if they’d be up for a 4 hour drive to the southern half of the state. I kept imagining them running around Great Sand Dunes National Park with a perfect orange sunset in the background. Super stoked they were down to make that vision a reality.
If you’ve never been, I urge you to make a visit to this fascinating place. These sand dunes are the tallest of all the dunes in North America. They’re strangely placed in between mountains… with no ocean in sight. That’s a bit wild if you ask me. I hope I make it back to do a little more exploring in the future.
Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoy!
