Medano Pass, Medano Lake and Great Sand Dune National Park

A few photo's from Medano Pass and the Great Sand Dune National Park from a little trip last weekend. No real action photo's or video from the time I was on the trail, though I should've taken some of the creek crossings since a few of them were deeper than my first trip there 2 years ago (water up over the hood momentarily).

Probable the hardest section of the trail coming from the east or west depending on which way you come.

Made the 4-mile hike up to Medano Lake.
The trail started getting a slick as you neared the lake.

Medano Lake

As mentioned above no photo's from between the Medano Lake trailhead and the Sand Dunes. One of the creek crossings and the one I had water over the hood was due to ruts/holes in the middle of the crossing. Right before it was a large off-camber mud hole. Fun.

Great Sand Dune National Park

Overall, it was a great trip and my first real trip in 2 months since coming back from Montana.
