The General

Uploaded: January 23, 2015 14:30:41 | Entered: January 23, 2015 15:01:55


The General rests atop Kelso Dunes in the Mojave Desert. Roughly 1hr 30 min walk through small dunes to the main dune, then another 1hr up the peak - about a 720 foot/219 meters climb to the top. In deep sand. Not bad for a ten year old General.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: -0.33, ExposureTime: 1/320 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 14.00 mm, Model: NIKON D610
