The Desert

This is the view from the end of the Calico Tanks trail at Red Rock Canyon. If you enlarge the photo, you can see downtown Las Vegas in the distance. I don’t think of mountains when I think about the desert. I also don’t think of the amazing variety of vegetation that exists in the desert. Mostly, I think of a desolate and foreboding expanse. It is hard to understand and appreciate something until you experience it firsthand.
