The land was beautiful and gorgeous, going from brush to sand dunes in one area that used to be under water approximately around 80,000 years ago. It is so hard to believe that this beautiful land once was a massive lake.

Everything is massive and big, stretching on for miles.

The bottom one was the brighter one, had an amazing arch and you could see both ends of the rainbow which is rare.
