So you climbed the big one, eh? That’s something I’ve never done, though Beth and I were at the sand dunes 2 or 3 weekends ago as part of a long weekend trip to the San Luis Valley. If you ever want to visit that part of the state again, I’ve got TONS of advice for what to see in the area. We’ve been there a lot.

You weren’t far from the UFO watchtower, the highest narrow gauge railroad in the US, a couple of enjoyable hot springs, and Colorado’s most famous alligator farm.

Yep, sure did! We drove right by all those attractions, making notes for what to stop at the next go-around. Have you been to all of those places? That UFO Watchtower seemed utterly ridiculous!

Yes, I’ve been to all those attractions, and a few others. Colorado’s largest colony of bats isn’t far from there, and each night in the summer, dozens of people hike up to the entrance to the old mine to watch them swarm out right at dusk.

If you decide you’re into the camping thing, let me know. Beth and I have a 2.5 person tent we don’t need anymore, and you’re welcome to it.
