More photos of Sesriem and Sossusvlei, Namibia (February 27, 2008)

Dramatic dunes with acacia trees in the foreground
People climbing up the massive dunes (look for the small dots just to the right of the middle of the photo)
"Dead Vlei" - the white area is where water once ran hundreds of years ago, allowing trees to grow. Because the desert is so dry, when the trees eventually died, they simply remained standing. Some of the trees in this photo are between 600 and 900 years old!
A closer view of one of the dead trees
Yet another beautiful African sunset
