These photos are from literal YEARS ago. YEARS, folks, but I’m resurrecting them today on the blog because I finally went through and selected images from every trip I’ve taken between 2012 and today and designed them into assorted (personal) photo books. The international trips all got their own books, so there’s one massive one for South Africa, another massive one for our Backpacking Through Europe Trip, and another for Thailand, and the one that started it all is for Uganda.
BUT THAT WASN’T ENOUGH. Not one to do things the easy way, I also wanted a book that grouped together photos from most of the trips I’ve taken in California and the rest of the US, so now there’s one that has those, too. All camping and backpacking and roadtrip adventures, most of them with some of my photo friends, but Sam has a healthy showing, too, haha.
Once I went through them and designed the books and ordered (with Blurb! loving them!), I had a bazillion photos that I loved on my hands, all edited and sorted and happy, so I’m going to blog all of those adventures randomly until I stop. Or “catch up” or whatever. Mostly I just want to share the photos that make me happy, ya know?
Sand dunes are such a dream, honestly. They have a life of their own, so each time you see them, they look quite a bit different. They are dramatic and humans disappear on them in a visual sense, so when you look out, you really don’t see dozens of people exploring, just endless dunes and stunning visual lines. It could also have been the fact that we were there when almost nobody else was. BUT STILL. So so beautiful, I still cannot get enough and am right now dreaming of ways to go back right away, or sooner.
Also on the list? Those white sand dunes in New Mexico.
The sand dunes here are surrounded my mountains. It’s a hell of a lot of work to get up the sand dunes, but the view at sunrise and sunset is exceptionally worth it. We loved going up barefoot and even thought it might be a little bit easier.
Really, the curves of an unbroken dune are the most incredible. Whoa.
