So Terribly Dry

This set of seven photos show the desert just east of Las Vegas Valley. A totally barren landscape that believe it or not, was once a shallow sea over two hundred million years ago! Plate Techtonics ended that era and pushed up the mountains we see today, although they surely looked different those millions of years ago.

    • It’s so amazing isn’t it, Anneli?! Some folk find this desert unattractive, I so disagree! Those folk should have a nice long walk among the creosote bushes and other plants.

      • I used to think the desert was nothing but boring sand. Then we went to Baja for three months of dry camping and really got to know the beauties of the desert. It is far from dead!
