Some Photos from Western Sahara..

It's windy and sandy and rocky here.. Coastline is amazing in places, but most of the drive will drive you bonkers.

Yes, great pics. Be good to get locations for those big flats. Brave of you to venture out onto the soggy stuff.

When I have a decent connection I'll try to plot something, but most of those shots are off the main road to Dakhla. It was easy to get into the flat section where most of the shots are, but getting back up the hill to the road was hairy at best. I'd best most are smart enough not to go where I went, fortunately I made it back up, but looking up the hill at the end made me regret my decision.. Fortunately powering up in second gear worked out. It would have been a disaster if I'd gotten stuck. I think I just got lucky to be honest. I wouldn't recommend it.

For what it's worth, this was fate catching up with me just outside of the border with Senegal..
