I am Dreaming of Sand

Twitter
Father Crowley Point, Death Valley National Park
My mind is just blank and tired right now, and of all places, I have been missing and really aching to go back to the desert! Though we have lots of sand here from the beaches in San Diego, but I am missing the desert's sand!

I truly miss the time I am rolling and hiking in this desert full of sand!

to better understand my appreciation for the desert as much as the mountains and the oceans, you can visit my post here "The Desert Through My Eyes".
Anyway, have been everywhere today, I believe that's what happen when the mind is very tired! You just simply want to walk...walk...and walk....and enjoy the fullness of life in our natural world! Here's my weekend reality right now in San Diego, thankfully, though have been busy, but the outdoors have not taken a backseat at all.
Life by the Beach ( would you believe this is actually right next to the beach? )
My fish find at the beach :)

  3. thanks bengbeng and rochelle. i love the desert, when i did not know much about it before, i also thought it's the last place i want to be, but when i started to get a deeper understanding of the desert, i find it to be one of the world's fascinating places on Earth, a place of immense beauty but yes, not for everybody probably to appreciate since many would think of desert as a simple wasteland, which happily, is not.

  6. Hi Bets, I missed you! And I really missed your NP posts! Death Valley is beautiful and the sand dunes, just gorgeous!

    I got back late this afternoon and was so tired because of the drive up the winding road and steep elevation!

    Hope you are doing well in every aspect of life!

  11. Thanks for showing how beautiful and diverse the desert can be.
    But as for beach sand, I don't miss that and I am surprised that any sand is actually left at the beach as you seem to always bring so much home with you in the car.

  12. I love walking the beach, and appreciating the sand. I have never been to the desert, but it is such a mysterious, and lovely place, even with all its dryness.

  17. Hi Bets, I did that mosaic by PS, just a little practice while my coach is away for 2 months.

    The ride towards Big Bear was tough and I am beginning to overcome my fear of heights. Every time I see someone behind me, I always pull over at the nearest turn about. I always follow the posted sign.

    Thanks for your kind comments, it gives me more inspiration to work harder on the PS tutorial!

  20. The rolling sand dunes are lovely. Are those your footprints in the distance? So remote, you could be the only person making an imprint there.

  21. I understand what it's like to miss a place where you don't get to go very often. I've never been to a desert, and I don't know if I want to, but I think I know why you miss it.

  22. Betchai > Forgive me for not reading what you wrote because your photos are impressive. I love the editing you did on the photos. Or maybe the beauty of the scene were just so outstanding.

    I was so captured for a moment by the photos, losing my focus on what you wrote. hehe

    Good job!

  26. Beautiful pictures. Where did you find the mountain color? We went up to Cuyamaca two weeks ago, but not much color up there this year.

  27. Really? The desert sand is that nice? I don't know cos I have never been to a desert before!

    Cool photos! Especially that Life By The Beach photo : )

  28. Wow, the Death Valley pix is so stunning! All of the pictures are really well taken. You captured the scenery and objects with great lighting which is why the colors are so brilliant. Great job!

  29. Betchai, these photographs are spectacular! I've never been to Death Valley, so close to me! Guess I need to stop cavorting about Europe and focus a little on some of the beautiful places nearer home! I've never been a desert person but it does have its own beauty!
