MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!

Once again, we celebrate May 4th or Star Wars Day with photos from Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area in California. For years, Star Wars enthusiasts have ventured to the BLM’s Imperial Sand Dunes to visit the filming location of the opening scenes of Return of the Jedi.  The Imperial Sand Dunes are the largest dune mass in California.  Formed by windblown sands of ancient Lake Cahuilla, the dunes create an out-of-this-world landscape ideal for Hollywood film backdrops and are known as an off-roading mecca.

The Perseid Meteor Shower didn’t disappoint last night in Utah’s Valley of the Gods, where 500+ foot rock spires offered a great foreground.  BLMer Bob Wick took the starry photo of the area last night and the day shots earlier in the week. A scenic loop tour travels through the spectacular sandstone formations – accessible to a passenger car in dry conditions.  #weekendinspiration

Camp breakfasts; it’s better off the tailgate, by the fire.
