Summer Interlude

When you live in the desert you look to the mountains for water, greenery and coolness. Sometimes you don't believe in these things until they're right in front of you. On the road to Angel Lake you circle round double twists and turns with a cliff and no guardrail on your right side. And then the road twists around again and you see this:



Follow the creek long enough and you find yourself singing, the hills are alive/with the sound of music...


Then there's the road up the canyon. One side dust and sagebrush. The other side, beyond the trees, an entirely green world:

Oh, how pretty. You're right, I wouldn't expect that in the desert.
