I drove through the Arizona/California desert areas today. I've always wanted to stop and take photos of the sand dunes, but it is either crowded, hot as $%#@, or the light is bad. Also, I was never sure where I could get photos without the power lines in the way and usually am not in the mood to explore.
Today, it was still hot and quite bright, but I wasn't feeling rushed, so I decided to stop and explore! I also stopped along the winding road to get the rock shot.
