Day 1 - Mesquite Sand Dunes in Death Valley is such a perfect place to reflect 2014 in retrospect and kick start 2015 right. Paul and I spent NYE over smores and beer with Erin and Susan who were in the middle of their 3-week Southwest trip. Next day we went to the Mesquite Dunes despite knowing that we will be skunked. We thought it would be good to shoot abstracts and scout areas we can shoot next time when the conditions are ideal. I just hope we don't get skunked the whole year round!
