Colorado National Parks

In addition to Rocky Mountain National Park (click here for the gallery), we went to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and Great Sand Dunes National Park, both of which are also in Colorado (we'll have to save Mesa Verde NP for another time). The three parks are gorgeous, and have an amazing variety of landscapes.

I wonder where the person who made these footprints started.
The shapes of the ridges can change very quickly.
