Great Sand Dunes...
Beautiful, Strange and Unusual
amazing beauty of the Great Sand Dunes makes you forget
that the area also has a long, and mysterious history of
strange and unusual phenomenon. From ghosts to dancing balls
of unexplainable light and energy, lovers of paranormal
and extraterrestrial explorers have chronicled countless
tales and experiences.
Among some of the best known are:
Waters of the Dunes
Water is at once scarce and abundant, and in the midst of
this paradox is the absolute epitome of aridity: the drifting,
towering heaps of sand that comprise the Great Sand Dunes.
Their very existence depends upon water, and yet they seem
the ultimate representation of a desert.
Michael Geary, researcher
and the Mysterious Valley
Are you looking for something different and unusual for
your next outdoor getaway? Do you feel like an X-File-type
adventure where you become the super sleuth investigating
a secret conspiracy?
You might remember the region first gained national attention
in the 1970s with a rash of cattle mutilations reports that
still continue today. At one time the subject of a federal
investigation, the strange and horrible incidents remain
a mystery. But there are other strange stories that have
circulated around campfires about strange lights in the
night sky, mass sightings of UFOs in the region; strange
reports of invisible hovercraft and a constant barrage of
black helicopter fly-overs.
