This summer we had the opportunity to camp at Sand Dunes National Park with our homeschool group. We had a fantastic time, staying in a cabin, playing in the water and building sand castles, hiking the mountains and hiking the dunes. With the boys a year older since our last trip to the Sand Dunes we were able to hike all the way to the highest peak. I was so proud of them and SO thankful for our emergency protein bars and applesauce in our hiking backpack. It took us all day and something like 15k steps and the equivalent of 100 flights of stairs but we made it. Of course, coming back down was tons of fun and super easy. We purchased a used snowboard at the end of the season and it was the perfect "sled" for sliding down the sand.
