Travel Notebook: Stovepipe Wells Dunes

Stovepipe Wells Dunes, Death Valley National Park

Yesterday: Climb to the top of Death Valley Buttes from Hells Gate.

Today: Sunrise from the most westerly dune at Stovepipe Wells.

Sunrise
Up
Blue sky like water rolling over navy sand
Or
Navy water over blue
Down
Light sand
Waves like water
Nature imitating nature
East
The lazy fade to orange
The subtle fade to light
West
The moon transfers responsibility to
The sun
All over
A valley sits
There is everything here

Mountains appear where there previously existed nothing
At least that is what it seemed
The truth is
The mountains were always there
Waiting
Waiting for you
To find yourself
At the right time, place
In nature
In life
There are rewards
For your preparation
