On your way to dunes you can stop in Visitor Center. It is small and not so many exhibits there; however, it has a good and easy to understand information about dunes creation. Also you can see a movie about Great Sand Dunes. It has many beautiful shots of dunes during all seasons, about its nature, animals. For instance, for me it was interesting to know that in Dunes there is an insect that could be found only in Dunes and nowhere else in the world. Sorry I don’t remember insect’s name.
