The journey begins in Cairo, a massive city that is filled with dust and surrounded by sand.
Just outside of the city, a caravan of drivers waits to take us further afield.
A desert landscape that is, while beautiful, very lonely.
Rock formations of the Western Desert, outside of Bahariya oasis.
Smaller formations in the White Desert--this one, from a distance, looks a bit like a duck.
The Desert Date Palm.
Sand, light, and wind is nature's way of making beautiful what otherwise seems like a dead landscape.
The last thing I thought I'd find in the desert: a lake.
Our driver takes a break to sit and watch the sun fall.
We follow his cue.
Night comes, and so do the critters.
