“Strolling on, it seems to me
that the strangeness and wonder
of existence are emphasized here,
in the desert,
by the comparative sparsity of the flora and fauna:
life not crowded upon life
as in other places
but scattered abroad in spareness and simplicity,
with a generous gift of space
for each herb and bush and tree,
each stem of grass,
so that the living organism
stands out bold and brave and vivid
against the lifeless sand and barren rock.
The extreme clarity of the desert light
is equaled by the extreme individuation of desert life-forms.
Love flowers best in openness and freedom.”

— Edward Abbey

  3. It snowed in Wisconsin yesterday, another three inches. The night before last it was 21 below. You remind me that Spring does exist and that flowers are stirring out of the cold into blooms on the desert. I miss the high desert of New Mexico, but am glad we’re here. Still, your photos are a good reminder of warmer times.
