Majestic snow-capped “fourteeners,” alpine meadows carpeted in wildflowers, pristine mountain lakes. These are the images most people associate with Colorado. But charming mountain terrain is not the only attraction the Centennial State has to offer the geotraveler. One of Colorado’s lesser-known geologic marvels is a vast field of sand dunes - the tallest in North America - a site sure to thrill anyone.
Travel through the precipitous peaks and daunting dunes of Colorado as EARTH explores the Centennial State in the March issue. Read more about this adventurer’s dream, as well as other analytical stories on topics such as how oil and water helped the U.S. and its allies win World War II, how remote sensing is helping aid agencies prepare for famine before it strikes, and who should be paying for cleanup after wildfires and landslides wreak havoc, also in the March issue.
These stories and many more can be found in the March issue of EARTH, now available digitally (http://www.earthmagazine.org/digital) or in print on your local newsstands.
