Went outside with my father last night to take some pictures of the northern lights. They have been a lot better than this during the winter, but sadly the winter is coming to its end, and this might be the last I’ll see of the lights this time.
Covering 81,000 sq km, the Namib is a coastal desert in south west Africa, stretching between Angola, ,Namibia and South Africa. In the local Nama language, Namib means “open space”. The desert is almost totally barren, receiving less than 1cm of rain annually. Instead, Fogs that blow in from the ocean in the early morning are the main source of moisture for the local animals and plant species.
In the southern parts of the desert, Sand dunes that range in colour from pink to orange can rise as high as 300m. The desert is a rich source of diamonds and salt.
Made the first mountain trail of the year, and it just took me about 5 minutes longer then my fastest. Nethertheless my legs were dead yesterday ^^
It’s a short trail with a bit more than 2.5 km length (one direction) and 500 meters in height and it took me 47 minutes to get up and 27 to get down. But it’s really great if there is no time for a long run
