Desert Beauty

Some only see an arid landscape in their minds when the word desert is spoken. Others think of a parched death-scape. But, those with an eye towards the unique and surprising, see much more.  Delicate paper-thin desert blooms, a mosaic of dried mud, imagined creatures long extinct and rocks supported by impossibly thin necks are just a few of the things I viewed my travels on the Grand Staircase in Utah. I want to return soon and find even more beauty.
