Utah Loop 2013 Day 5 Great Sand Dunes NP to San Luis Lakes SP, CO

Today was kind of a rest day. I checked the house batteries when we got up and with our watching a two hour movie, and the heat going all night, we still had power.   We turned on the generator and Mavis cooked sausage biscuits for breakfast in the microwave. Two of those last all day.  We hiked out to the sand dunes accompanied by lots of school children on a field trip. When you get to the top of the first dune, you see another and another. Then it was a 22 mile drive to San Luis Lakes State Park which is 11 miles straight south and 11 miles straight west. The sky became very exciting especially when you can see storms coming from miles away. We got a picture of a tornado forming but Mavis says it was a dust devil. Then we got some rain and even a little hail. We are in a beautiful state park surrounded by snow capped mountains and power at each of 51 sites. Apparently we are ahead of the season as we almost had the entire park to ourselves. One other rental RV showed up later in the day. I was cold and windy so we stayed inside and I got some work done as well as finally planning the rest of the trip.  Tomorrow we head for Durango, CO.
