Colorado's getting some love from National Geographic. The publication recently featured eight places to stargaze in Colorado, in what it calls a "coronavirus-conscious" road trip. One of the spots is Great Sand Dunes National Park. Ryan Warner spoke with longtime ranger Fred Bunch last year when the park landed a “Dark Sky” designation.
