Adventure



Red Rock Canyon - Mojave Desert, CA

Clear, sunshine filled afternoon, a perfect 77degrees.
The winds were strong and steady, pushing and pulling us while we scaled the rock face.
Sand in the eyes, hands covered in small cuts and fiber glass like cactus hairs.
Walking the Desert river bed, reeds still green from the rainy season.
Cathedrals of clay sand drip mountains, the land skewed with every view.

The West is forever my Home.

I grew up in the Mojave. Lancaster area - but it wasn't this beautiful.
