We had one problem. We were near the dunes and we wanted to go down. However, there was a river. We were successful and enjoyed the flowers, the dunes, the sand and the driftwood. We had fun, especially seeing the dunes. Worthwhile to see!

This scenic beach has several stacks or rocks on and just off shore. Great place to stroll and soak up the good life.

On the road less traveled, seek out the stairs across the street from Lord Bennett's fabulous restaurant. Great views and photos from the road, too. Memorable and worth the trip from Denver!
