16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Quad Adventures in Gunga Beach

This picture was taken from the back of a quad, while driving off-road beside the Atlantic Ocean, leaving the red canyon of Gunga behind us. The only ways to access this incredible rock formation - hidden beside the biggest coconut tree farm of Brazil and its famous white sandy beach - are via the sea or making your way through this tough off-road carven within rocks, thick red sand and mud. The view through the whole ride - blue ocean on one side, red sand on the other - and the final surprise of the majestic canyon are totally worth a few bumps...
