mesquite

Following up from the sand dune post from Oregon, here is a very different set of sand dunes from Death Valley.  Not nearly as all encompassing as in Oregon, the Mesquite dunes near Stovepipe Wells are an awesome set of dunes none-the-less.  I went there fairly close to sunset and just walked around as I love to do.  When the sun was fully set, the horizon color got deeper, contrasting with the deep desert blue of the sky.  Warm and quiet with the softly rounded dunes in the approaching darkness.  The mystery of the desert coming alive.
