I wanted to share some photos from that trip with you. The desert never ceases to astound me with its beauty.
On this trip we saw long legged insects that danced across the hot sands on their very tiptoes, mysterious plants, wild baby camels, and I even fed a camel an apple and a banana.
He was lying down so I thought it would be safe to approach him. After shyly accepting the fruit he got up and followed me back to the SUV! I gave him another piece of banana and he allowed us to pass. Considering we'd seen two camels munching a piece of cardboard between them, the fruit must have been a treat.
We drove all over, all getting stuck at least once and digging and pushing and towing each other out. It was a great group. I can see how they work so well together on the jobsite.
We emptied out the sand from our shoes at least once an hour to make room for our toes. As we headed towards the mountains the fine soft sand went from pale colored to a rich orange.
It was a marvelous, tiring time, and we came home absolutely exhausted, absolutely happy.
