This week’s Photohunt theme is Dusty. Photohunt is brought to you by TnChick – home of the original photohunt.
Dust – fine white dust that sifts into everything. That is one of my memories of eight days driving the dusty dirt roads of Namibia. Over 65% of the roads are dirt and you can’t avoid them unless you just want to see one or two places.
Our favorite place in Namibia was Etosha. It is a large lake pan that dries up before the rainy season. The animals move from waterhole to waterhole. We would drive around watching for dust clouds on the horizon – a sure sign of a group of animals. Zebras were one of the easiest to spot and the dustiest. But it was also a good way to find elephants since they would often snort dirt up while moving between the waterholes.
Here are a few of the dusty guys we met. I’m also including a road shot since I missed last week. These were all taken in Etosha.
Have a great weekend and hope you are having a lovely spring holiday – Easter or Passover.
