The Sahara desert is one of the driest and hottest regions in the world. But in 2016, a small town in Algeria’s Sahara Desert experienced its first snow in 37 years, and the red dunes unexpectedly turned white.
A local photographer photographed the Sahara in a white coat. He said that everyone was shocked to see the snow in the desert. Because it’s very rare for the local people. It took about a day for the snow to melt. The last snow was in February 1979.
