Also I have learned this about being in Midland, it doesn't matter where you are - there is sure to be beauty around you in creation. Even Midland in all its flat dusty glory, has the best sunrises a dreaming girl could dream of. They do NOT disappoint. ALl that to say I have come to appreciate the small things. Monahans Sand Dunes are not going to be my prime vacation spot, but it was a really enjoyable time and a really gorgeous day. And if that's not enough to get you there, I felt like I was Penelope Cruz in Sahara. You know, the one with Matthew McConaughey. That's right.
I love when the sand creates this little ridge right at the top of the hill.
See? Stinking gorgeous.
A little bird had been here, and it left the most confusing trail of tracks I've ever seen. I couldn't follow.
Sometimes he gets a little annoyed with all of my pictures. It's a classic case of not understanding the blog world.
The dark abyss.
I told you they were confusing tracks. This bird was messed up.
I have to say, the day proved to be more fun than one would expect. And talk about a work out - climbing up dunes of sand is no task for the weak of heart. I realize Midland may not be your next vacation spot, but if it is, you can add to the fun by a stop at the Sand Dunes. They do not disappoint.
