Distances are deceiving in the desert. Here I am 2.5 miles away from camp which is at the base of those mountains to the left. You may be able to see a small white specks at the base of a low dark hill on the left. That is an RV but not mine. Mine is too small to see. On this particular hike I realized I wasn't getting that much closer to my destination so I stopped here.
A tall Ocotillo is the only shade provided in this area.
This is the view I have from my "patio" where I eat all my meals or just sit and enjoy.
If the clouds give the sun something to work with I get wonderful sunsets each evening.
Regarding yesterday's post about the Super Moon I was really lucky for when I went out for an encore performance last night the above cloudy skies obscured the moon.
I would have had to wait till 2034 for another chance.
