My muscles screamed in pain as I walked to my car from the tracks. The thirteen miles had taken a toll on my body. I collapsed in the car and started her up- just sitting there until I could bring myself to leave. Yesterday I had driven by sand dunes for miles upon miles upon miles. I was going to stop this time and catch sunset.
I had hours til sunset, but here I was. I threw the car in park and flung the door open - the wind violently slapping me in the face, my hair going every which way- I jumped out of the car, every muscle screaming reminders that I shouldn't have done that. I pushed through the pain, walking to the sand. I was determined to climb to the top of a dune and either run or slide down. I couldn't.
I lingered for as long as my restless self would allow- not long. I began the drive back towards Phoenix, wishing that I never had to leave the beautiful land of California. The denticulate mountains jutted out from the horizon, looking ever so smashing. Colors changed from light pastel pinks to greens, blues and eventually turning to black.
This was an incredible part of the world, my heart longs to go back, to spend time gaining a more in depth understanding of this rigid landscape. I travel alone a good bit, but I do enjoy the companionship of others as well on my ventures. If you want to meet up n go on a lil trip, please just send me a message and lets work on planning something fun.
