Death Valley / 2

Hi guys! It's been a very busy month for us! I have so many projects that I'm excited to share with you, but I haven't put the time in to edit/write/post them! It's been hard to find the motivation after my day job to go home and start editing and writing at 10pm. This is especially difficult when you have a comfy couch waiting for you, and so many TV shows to catch up on. The last few months of the year are often the busiest for me - with traveling, closing out the year at work, and also taking more opportunities here and there.  

Anyway, here is part 2 of our Death Valley trip! 
After being in the hottest and lowest point of North America, we drove to the sand dunes to catch the sunset. It was very peaceful to stand amongst acres and acres of sand, and realize that you're just another grain of it. I wish I had a drone to see how far the dunes reached. We stayed there a little too late and had to find our way back to our car in darkness (and I mean darkness).

Death Valley / 1

Rudy, Alyssa, Feng and I took a trip to Death Valley. It was about a 5 hour drive, passing several eerie abandoned villages, and driving 20mph on unpaved roads, hoping our tires wouldn't pop. This place is worth visiting, but honestly I'm not sure if I'd ever really want to go back. We hit up 3 spots in Death Valley - the village with a convenient store, a bar and a buffet, Badwater Basin which is the lowest point in North America, and the Sand Dunes. 

This photo shoot took place at Badwater Basin - which was 115F/46C. It felt like a big giant breathing down hot air on us. We got out of our car, and immediately sweat was dripping down! You must be thinking we were crazy for doing a photo shoot.. yup we were! Though not the most eco-friendly, we left the car air conditioning on high, and ran back and forth to cool down and change. 
Hey! At least the photos turned out pretty cool!
