20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Dancing in the Desert

One of my favorite things that I did when I was living in California was the weekly adventures I would take myself on. I would jump into my car with only a general sense of which direction I would head and allow myself to stumble into wonderful and sometimes surreal scenery. One day I came across these volcanic dunes, I couldn't resist the urge to run barefoot across the red and black sand dancing as I went.
