We came upon many sand dunes that were indeed a great height. We all challenged ourselves to climb to the top, and realized just how tiring climbing in deep sand can be.
At last, camp was reached, and we climbed off the camel, and painfully walked/limped away, looking for somewhere very soft to sit down. Our family tent (seen below) was very cozy, and we all were ready to relax in the evening.
After dinner, we got to see some amazing skies as the sun began to set on another day, and the last rays painted the rocks and sand a warm red.
We had a quick bite of breakfast, then it was off to explore more of the desert, this time by jeep! It was interesting how often we would come across inukshuks scattered throughout giant rock formations. Eskedar and Bereket liked to build their own, too. As well, Eskedar built a small house with a fire pit and benches. The kids discovered that rocks are like nature's own Lego set.
The kids and I tried snowboarding for the first time last year at the Kimberley Ski Hill (to various degrees of success). We were all quite certain (why, I am not sure) that we would be successful. First thing we needed to do, was find a good sand dune.
