Sunrise hike up the dunes. What a great way to start the morning. Photo by the one and only @andiawinslow. I think 4 pounds of sand came out of my shoes at the end of this one.

Cruising through Colorado in a 6 car @subaru_usa caravan with the @goparks #FYPx crew, co-piloting with this beauty (@andiawinslow.) My playlist went from Radiohead to Travis Scott and she didn't judge

It's pretty hard to track down your Subaru friends when practically everyone in Colorado has one too..

Check out my fellow #FindYourPark-er @TwoMacks looking like a warrior princess! #FYPx using a traditional hunting tool #atlatl that native people used to hunt #Bison.

This is @javi_glz. He's another one of the #fypx crew who woke up extra early to march through some dunes before sunrise this morning.

CAMPAIGN: Subaru's Love Promise: Environment


Over the weekend, the Find Your Park Expedition (#FYPx) participants gathered from different corners of the U.S. and hit the road to embark on a trip to two national parks in Colorado. The first stop on the itinerary took the #FYPx crew to a unique high-altitude desert environment to experience a national park known for its beautiful extremes.

After meeting up in Denver, Colo. for a kick-off party at the REI flagship store, the #FindYourParkExpedition participants made their way to Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve for the first stop in the trip.

It's no surprise that with a group like this -- filled with talented photographers, videographers, and storytellers -- that we'd get such a beautiful window into the adventures being enjoyed.
