The Winter’s Tale in the Desert

1 F-111F 73-0710

When we arranged the visit to AMARG in 2007, we thought of sun, heat and dust. We packed our boots, we bought special sunscreen and we prepared some t-shirts for the day. Plenty of water against the dehydration. You can’t imagine our surprise, when we looked in the morning out of the window – at first instance, I thought I’m back in Germany.-5°C (23°F) and snow – yes, it was snow. We were told by our guide, it was the first snow in the area for 20 years – just after lunch the splendor of mother nature was gone again. However, we tried our best to get as many pictures as possible of this unique occasion – it was a perfect day.

Big thank you for Terry Vanden-Heuvel, who accompanied us very patiently on our hike in the snow.
