Playing at the Imperial Sand Dunes
We are boondocked just barely into California near Yuma. Al had his dentists appointments in Algodones, Mex. yesterday and this is a good place to stay for that. We are only here a couple nights, so last night I decided I better take Torrey to the sand dunes to play, since she loves sand about as much as snow. The Imperial sand dunes encompass a huge area. They are 40 miles long, and average 5 miles wide. They are a very pretty soft pink color, and super fine, and Torrey always has a blast here. Plus, at sunset the shadows and colors are amazing for photos.
As you can imagine, the area is poplar with people on four wheelers, sand rails, all that stuff. We found this quite little area of the dunes a few years ago, so we don’t have to worry about getting ran over. Which is perfect for Torrey and I to play her favorite game.
She loves to run at me as I photograph her. It’s a game we play in the desert all the time, but is especially fun in sand.
I got some very cool photos of the ripply, and wavy sand too.
It’s tough being a super model.
Unfortunately, Al has to come back to the dentist the end of this month. The infection still hadn’t gone away, so they gave him some more antibiotics to take, and another 3 week wait. But, maybe Torrey can have another evening play at the sand dunes.
