The desert has a blazing sun like a fireball with fiery fingers that stretch to the ground. The sky is bright blue and cloudless.
The sand is golden yellow and burning. The sand is smooth. The sand has ripples like your fingerprint. The sand is brownish. When the sun goes on the sand it sparkles.
The journey is a challenging one.
The adventurers are sweating and thirsty.
They have tall long shadows like pitch black hair.
The desert is a horrible place.
