The One Place In The U.S. That Feels Like You’ve Landed On Another Planet
One of the most incredible aspects of living in America is the country’s diversity of landscape. The physical differences between each state is remarkable, yet each region has its own unique beauty. And arriving to an unvisited place in the U.S., you might suspect you’ve landed on an entirely different planet. That seems to be the general consensus for those arriving to the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado. Amidst the Rocky Mountains there appears a vast stretch of sand dunes and you’ll need to see it to believe it actually exists.
