Mystic Places | Moab, UT

shoomlah:

a bunch of the plein air sketches I was working on during my Utah trip! A week drawing rocks, getting mistaken for a ranger twice- pretty ideal.

what the heck, this seems appropriate for Mystic Places as well.

I was sketching and keeping a mini travel journal the entire time I was out in Utah- I’m sure Atrus would’ve been proud. :)

Dallol Volcanic Crater

In the North East of Ethiopia lies the Danokil Desert.  At its heart is a volcanic crater, Dallol, little known and seldom visited but quite extraordinary.  

Surrounding the volcano are acidic hot springs, mountains of sulphur, pillars of salt, small gas geysers and pools of acid isolated by salt ridges. It makes for one of the most bizarre landscapes on planet Earth.
