Tamezret, Tunisia

Tamezret is a  Berber village located southeast of the country, about 25 miles southwest of the Gabes—the capital city on which it depends. It is one of the first villages to deviate from the troglodyte dwellings in the region. Many residents here have resisted linguistic assimilation and still speak Berber within their families.

This is a fascinating place to see the past alive!

Moon Valley, Atacama Chile

Moon Valley is located in the Cordillera de la Sal (Salt Mountains) in the Atacama Desert. It is an interesting area with stones and sand formations that, for millennia, floods and winds have given it a series of amazing colors and texture. Given its rugged terrain, scientists tested a prototype for a Mars rover here.

Did you know that the Arabian Desert is one of the largest continuous bodies of sand in the world?! It is a vast desert wilderness occupying most of the Arabian Peninsula, with an area of 900,000 square miles.

My fascination with deserts continues and, although the temperatures were well above 100°F, I couldn’t resist lying on the very hot sand to capture the sun’s effect on the sparse desert vegetation as it set over the low dunes.

Namibia: Deadvlei

Deadvlei is a white clay pan. It was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab River flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where camel thorn trees grew. When the climate changed and drought hit the area 600–700 years ago, the sand dunes encroached on the pan, blocking the river from reaching the area. The trees died, leaving their skeletons behind.
