There was a price to be paid for access to such a glorious desert: the heat, humidity and absence of wind made it almost unbearable for a trek. Add to that misery the omnipresent insects that seem to thrive on bugging us mammals, and you get an idea about how awful it was out there.
Nevertheless, we all deemed it a necessary sacrifice for the opportunity to experience the desert glory first hand.
