The Landscape

We are back in the U.S.A. after a very successful trip. I’m excited to share another science-focused post soon, but with the jet lag that definitely won’t be today!

Since we had limited internet access from the field, I have a backlog of pictures to share. Here’s some highlights of the desert landscape. The valley, filled with fairy circles, surrounded by mountains and dunes made for a stunning background and incredible sunsets.

So long, NamibRand–at least for this year. I love the quote from Nelson Mandela on their sign.
