As most of you know,
Jurg and I toured through Namibia for a month during this past December and January.
If you're new around these parts, you can catch up here.
Deadvlei was everything I hoped it would be and more. Equal parts eerie, ancient, and awe-inspiring. Definitely goose bump worthy. Especially when you're one of the first people in the park on a particular day and you're able to stand in solitude, not wanting to make a sound, as the sun silently creeps over the surrounding dunes. The trees get their 'spookiness' from the fact that they're over 900 years old, mere skeletons of what was. Sort of like going back in time.
Witnessing this place first hand was sort of like a dream come true, only made better by the fact that I was able to experience it with someone so close to my heart. So thankful that I have photos to remember and so thrilled at the prospect of visiting again someday.
