7. Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

The Great Sand Dunes National Park is known for its beautiful silky sand dunes and adventurous hiking trails. Even though it is a great place to see and explore, things can get dangerous pretty quickly due to weather conditions.

For example, when it’s warm outside, the sand can reach temperatures that are higher than 150 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it almost impossible to walk on. However, there are people who choose to ignore the warning signs and recommendations and they risk melting their shoes, getting burned, dehydrated, or even becoming victims of heatstrokes.

If you thought that this is the worst thing that can happen, you are actually wrong, because there is more to that! There are tourists who are strong enough to resist the heat and they are adventurous enough to try hiking the park’s trails.

However, for an average person who doesn’t have any experience, things can get pretty bad, because there are many visitors who become the victims of quicksand and other difficulties that are spread along the pathway. Unfortunately, some of them have even lost their lives in this park.

Keep in mind that this is one of the hottest places that exist, so it is not a tourist destination that is suitable for everyone!

  1. I have been to several of these n so have my adult children with their young families. You FOLLOW the rules and you will be ok!!

  2. I myself haven’t been to any of those places but being from Cherokee NC with the Great Smoky Mountains neighboring our Reservation, you see people taking risks all the time. Of course everyone loves seeing the wildlife but when they want to crowd up around the elk, putting themselves and the elk in danger, is not smart at all. The same goes for bears who are even more dangerous and to some people they don’t care! Clingman’s Dome and the Chimneys are other great places to see but not without risks. Not that far of a hike but the high elevations, steep paths to the top and sometimes high winds are unseen hazards to remember.
