This past week I’ve taken full advantage of daughters time off; time before she starts her new job on Monday. I want her to love the desert as much as I do, or at least embrace the delightful uniqueness of the land.

She’s not quite sure how she feels about the cacti. She thinks some look evil and ready to attack with their thorns.
“I am not standing next to that thing”
There’s a harsh beauty to this land that I find anything but ordinary. I never know what I’ll see or discover on my excursions.
There’s something special…. something extra ordinary about the desert that makes me smile.
Daughter hasn’t quite embraced the desert, but she does maintain an open mind. I’ll keep working on her, and in the process, have fun sharing some of my desert favorites.
