White Desert Sunset

White Desert Sunset

One of the most stunning sunsets of the journey- deep in the Sahara lies the White Desert, in the western half of Egypt. We had managed to not only sneak away from the compulsory foreigners' convoy but also trick our way past the army roadblocks to reach this amazing location. Weird and wonderful rock formations had been created by sandstorms and desert winds over the centuries including this pinnacle. Maggie had scrambled to the top of it, completey unaware of her helmet in hand which she then placed by her feet as she watched the spectacular sunset.
