Deserts like this are hard going, but oh so beautiful at dawn and dusk ...

Pre-dawn raid, Ain Lalin, Iraq

Soldiers from the 588th Engineering Battalion block a road Monday during a pre-dawn raid in Ain Lalin, Iraq. Soldiers believed one of Iraq�s top fugitives used the village as base to plot guerilla attacks on U.S. forces.

They were unsuccessful in capturing their main target, a former regime officer who is on the list of 55 most-wanted Iraqis.
