Our Location: Near American Girl Mine Road, BLM, CA
A coldish night, not cold but colder than cool. You know the kind I mean, coldish. The wind was around all night or at least when I fell asleep last night and it was still there this morning. I stayed in bed reading and didn't bother with the sunrise. It would be too cold for me and I was thinking about all of the dust in the air.
Sure enough when I looked out the window we couldn't see the mountains to the west of us. We could see the Imperial Sand Dunes all day but not the mountains behind. The dust in the air obscured them and only on occasions did we see hints of them, outlines in the murk.
|This is what it normally looks like. The tan ridge in the front is the Imperial Sand Dunes.
|Only the dunes are visible today. A hint of the mountains behind but only a hint. Pretty much like this all day.
The sun was wonderful all day but temps reached 60F/15.5 C with a steady north wind, with some bigger gusts this afternoon, so not a warm day by desert standards. Toward the hills way off in the distance we could some haze in the air as well. Steady wind would mean dust and I wasn't going to take the camera out for that.

A day spent putzing and reading while doing some research on a few things as well. A nice day but we closed all the windows and vents for the day as it was chilly with the wind whipping in through them.
|Amazing how you can't see anything back behind the dunes, isn't it?
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your day.
Until next time.. take care, be safe,
