Hiking Great Sand Dunes National Park In Colorado

This was one of the most difficult physical things I've done.  Sound ridiculous, right?  I mean, I climbed a volcano, I've hiked to Delicate Arch, I've snowshoed on the side of a mountain, and I couldn't make it to the top of one of these dunes.  Well, I need to get in shape.  Great Sand…
