white sands, 2006

i really enjoyed the white sands in new mexico. giant white sand dunes in every direction for as far as you can see (50 miles wide!), some so tall that people sled down them.

i’ve always been really fascinated by deserts. probably for the same reason why i’ve always loved astronomy — vast expanses of empty space simply amaze me. it’s very humbling to think about, and for me, makes the problems of the world seem not quite so big after all.
