Day 2, Sunset
Here they are – Eureka Dunes. This is the first time I went there. Their size is magnificent and awe inspiring.
Just as I approached Eureka Dunes a low pressure indicator came up on console. I stopped and stepped outside. I could here a fizzing sound coming from a punched tire. Photography aside I had to replace the tire first.
Changing tire in heat and dust is not fun. At first I thought it was kind of lame that I had made all this way without a problem and got a flat at the destination. But in retrospective I think it was good it happened there and not in the middle of the road. It was easier to change tire on a leveled camping site than a rough road. And there were other campers there who were more than happy to help.
Once the tire was replaced I was ready to photograph a sunset. And what a sunset it was!
Here is the last light on the highest dune. The clouds are still white and soft.
And here are the clouds lit up.
