About This Piece

Ghost Predator
Bonney Lake State Park
30,000 years ago

Prehistoric lions hunted among Colorado sand dunes during the Pleistocene Epoch, surveying the drifting landscape for potential prey. A nearby river drained from the distant Rockies into the dry terrain. The landscape was in constant motion, as windy conditions caused dunes to migrate across the land.

The northwestern corner of Colorado is still covered with lightly vegetated sand dunes, remnants of an ancient dustbowl. The dunes are best seen from the air, but you can also see them as you approach Bonney Lake State Park, near the town of Wray, from the northwest.
