We searched for the sand desert. The Mummy type desert. Cool to have discovered it.
Here in Nizwa, we experience a desert but we’re talking dirt, gravel and rocks. No sand. Driving southwest toward the Wahiba Sands (super post by Clair on Zigzag On Earth) and northwest toward the Empty Quarter treats one to sandy deserts oft imagined by tourists.
I pulled over to the side of the road to capture the peaceful scenery of sand, scrub and a small herd of camels in this wilderness. I have developed immense respect for the hardiness of these feisty beasts. Kelli and I slather on inches of sun block to be in freaking the car. Sun’s reflective rays can be a real bitch. Meanwhile, camels thrive in wickedly powerful desert sun all day long. I promise; you feel like an ant being cooked under a magnifying glass in these intense rays. Camels have no such issues, though.
