This pic is from Sand Mountain NV, 85 miles east of Reno, from last month. It's a huge dune two miles long and 600 feet high, formed from sand originating from a lake that dried up 9,000 years ago.
Those tiny dots in the picture are motorcycles and ATVs riding up and down the dune. I loved the sense of fun, sport and community that bubbled up around this surprise spot, just off the loneliest road in America - Route 50.
Not much of an international tourist attraction - more of a locals' hangout to ride, drink and grill meat.
Bonus fact: Sand Mountain is among a few dunes in the world that actually sing. As wind blows across the top, the sands vibrate together to create a long eerie hum. This happens if the sand has round grains between 0.1 and 0.5 in diameter, contain silica, and maintain a level humidity.
If you're into road trips, weird shit and just a good wholesome slice of Americana, Sand Mountain is not to be missed | @travelnevada#dfmi

“We shall never find happiness by looking at our prayers, our doings, or our feelings; it is what Jesus is, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul. If we would at once overcome Satan and have peace with God, it must be by ‘looking unto Jesus.’
Keep thine eye simply on Him; let His death, His sufferings, His merits, His glories, His intercession, be fresh upon thy mind. When thou wakest in the morning look to Him; when thou liest down at night look to Him.
Oh! Let not thy hopes or fears come between thee and Jesus; follow hard after Him, and He will never fail thee.” - Charles Spurgeon #👀

Travel, especially with a three year old, can be seriously challenging. (Major props to all those parents with multiple kids...you are all 😇 in my book!) But the chance to connect them with family, broaden their experiences, challenge their understanding of the world, demonstrate grace under fire - it (usually) makes it all worthwhile. #NoPromises#WorthIt
