Daily Photo – Burning Through the Deserts of Death Valley

This was my first real experience in a proper desert. The thing that surprised me most was the blast of hot air that kept rushing into my face. I was only here in Death Valley for a few days, so I’m not exactly an expert in deserts. But, while I was there, a nonstop wind full of hot, wet, heat that was pounding into me. The “wet” part was the most interesting… it did not feel as dry as I expected.

The other thing I noticed is that walking up these sand dunes is not as easy as it is in video games.
