peeks at the world through my lens

Sossusvlei Sandstorm

Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei, consisting of a salt and clay pan and surrounding massive red dunes, is located in the Namib Desert, and is the worlds oldest desert. It is where the dunes join together to prevent the Tsauchab River from flowing any further towards the Atlantic, however the river very rarely reaches this arid pan. Walking over the windswept Namibian pan at the beginning of our first climb to the dunes felt as if we were walking on Mars during a sandstorm.

  1. Awesome. Glad it wasn’t Mars, cause you probably would have been cold.
