We have been in the area for 3 weeks (now in Ouray). Most of the state/fed and many of the commercial CGs are closed until MemDay, but then they get crowded with the Summer campers! We prefer the unpredictable weather & the CGs almost to ourselves. We can recommend United CG in Durango (just N of town at the end of the trolley route - $1/ride to the center of a vibrant town), Ancient Cedars CG just across the hwy from Mesa Verde NP and you avoid pulling your tc up the steep curvy road to the park CG, Outpost CG in Delores on the Delores River, McPhee Reservoir Forest Service CG and 4 J here in Ouray on the Uncomphagre River (Switzerland of the US).

I have always loved the sand dunes since I was a kid. My wife and I took our last trip there and being a life long skier I figured I'd ski the dunes. Hiked the full way with all me gear and got to the top, started putting gear on only the realize that I loaned out my skies and the bindings had been moved and I didn't pack a screwdriver up the hill. That certainly was a humbling experience there too - though for a much different reason.

Great story TinSheets! I used to ski and did think how cool it would be to try some of those dunes. I did see a family trying sand boarding near the bottom.

I laughed at your realization once you were at the top. At least you didn't have to do the walk of shame under a lift for all to see. No lines when I was there.
