Out there lies an endless desert. Stretching to the horizon. The air crisp and dry. The sun steadily beating down all life. No real way to go but through the thorny brush. Dust rising on my trail, the wind picks up and I saunter onward. This is no land for man. Peak after lonely peak reveals the enormity of the path ahead.Careful foot placement avoids pain from below. Everything out here is sharp, protective and hostile – fighting for every last drop of life.At the end of the day, when the sun drops below the horizon and the scorching air makes peace with night a sense of comfort is found out here in the Southwestern Desert. Have a great weekend and remember to get out and enjoy some nature.
