    and down time Victor was my Subaru partner and together we jammed out in the car to a playlist we both collaborated on and we obviously titled it FYPx We made a few stops along the scenic routes to take some pictures and one of us dropped our tripod Don t worry it was saved I enjoyed a quaint vintage coffee shop near Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve We all took advantage of the resting time to get a coffee drink and I got to look around at a couple of art pieces The barista was very kind and interested in who we were so it was a wonderful opportunity to tell her about FindYourPark Once we arrived at Great Sand Dunes some of us got to try sand boarding for the first time I had never done anything like that in my life so the experience was quite a funny and thrilling one The morning following our arrival a group went for an early hike at the dunes and the rest of us took the Subarus around the park to catch sunrise and squeeze in a few photos One of the most serene moments was resting on top of a beautiful canyon at Mesa Verde National Park as the sun was setting and laying in silence with Jinn from Columbia All in all I guarantee you that behind the scenes we were all giggling making way too many inside jokes taking too many photos eating very delicious food and loving as well as enjoying the outdoors together Goes to show that national parks connect us not just to landscapes and history but also to each other Grace Cortez participated in the National Park Foundation s 2015 Find Your Park Expedition Based out of Los Angeles California she

    wait for other hikers to quiet down While cars were lined up to enter Arches National Park I spent a full day hiking in Canyonlands National Park without passing a single other hiker When I was selected for the Find Your Park Expedition I was excited to travel to Great Sand Dunes and Mesa Verde but I wasn t expecting a whole lot from either I d seen sand dunes in Death Valley and cliff dwellings at Canyon de Chelly before Neither park seemed to have an extensive trail network and they both seemed a little on the small side Boy was I wrong The very first thing I did after arriving at Great Sand Dunes after gawking at just how huge those things are was start plotting a way to climb up them Although there are no established trails in the dunes for obvious reasons it is possible to feel like you re on an entirely different planet by trekking toward the dunes for just ten minutes Our group managed to climb to one of the taller dunes as the sun rose one morning beginning our hike in the parking area under the faint light of distant stars and ending it watching our home star paint the landscape in its particular shades of pink and orange Speaking with rangers at the park we learned that the entire surrounding landscape is responsible for these unusually tall dunes and how the research that led to that knowledge was also partially responsible for the park s expansion from its original boundaries into a full fledged national park and preserve The Great Sand Dunes isn t just the sand it s also portions of the nearby rift valley the unexpected watershed of Medano Creek and the towering pine covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains A park that I had long considered a quick day stop on the way to something more substantial actually has trails through epic mountain passes and near cascading waterfalls meaning I will definitely be coming back Perhaps even more surprising was the trip to Mesa Verde National Park This park is known primarily for its archeology and human history and not its hiking but what was surprising to me were the quality and ruggedness of the short trails that did exist rough and tumble CCC era classics that scrambled up cliff walls squeezed through boulders and opened up expansive million dollar views of the Colorado Plateau Also encouraging was a conversation with Park Superintendent Cliff Spencer who has already opened up some of the park to winter activities like snowshoeing and is investigating re opening some of the parks historic trails many of which were simply closed due to budgetary shortfalls So the next time you re planning a big outdoor trip to one of those better known parks be sure to take a look at the road map to make sure you re not missing any hidden gems along the way especially if you think you already know what
