Well, not a bad sandstorm, really - but bad enough to chase us back into the car as quickly as possible.
In this picture you can see the sandstorm in the not too far distance, blowing the sand over to the rest area next to the freeway. We were on our way to Arizona, but this is still in the desert in California along Interstate 40 between Barstow and Needles. The desert here looks like this:
Not really much to see... and the sand can pretty much do what it wants. Like blowing over the ground and into people's faces and eyes - not fun. The wind was hard, and we tried to get back into our car as quickly as possible. But not before I had taken some pictures of the fence around the rest area.
I wish you could see how everything was bent in the strong wind!
