Canon 850 with Gigapan


Medano Creek runs along the edge of the Great Sand Dunes. I happened to be there near the peak flow (June 2) and near the time of the maximum flow (dawn).

I had to cross the water. It is ice cold and you end up on the other side with wet feet in a pile of sand. You need to figure out how to get your feet dry and shoes on without too much sand to grind your flesh on the hike ahead.

The creek is very interesting as it pulses with flows. Well worth seeing. Take a towel.
