With all the wind we've been having, I was hoping it had been carving deep and arty furrows into the gently sloped dunes near Abbott's Lagoon,

but they didn't look much different than normal, side-lit in afternoon sun.

These coyotes, about 200 yards distant, were keeping a close eye on me. I'm guessing they were wondering what I might have been hunting.

Looks a lot like the sand at Death Valley. Who needs to drive so far when it is right here to photograph, and who'd be the wiser?

Well JOHN (SINBAD'S DAD) -- I've just been thinking about Death Valley… The dunes there are much more dramatic and chiseled, but catching them in a morning light is logistically difficult. Last time I was there I tried to arrive as early as possible, but it is a long drive in from Lone Pine, and the only other option is camping out nearby, and I'm not quite the camper I used to be. In any case, I definitely want to get to Bodie this year. I'm probably going to put the blog thing on hold during either August or September--haven't decided which. You aren't a Facebooker, are you, John? That's where I'll be posting my stuff while I'm gone and/or hiding out.
