Arizona, Canyon de Chelly, Desert

Photograph from somewhere in Canyon de Chelly.

For nearly 5,000 years, people have lived in these canyons – longer than anyone has lived uninterrupted anywhere on the Colorado Plateau. Today, Navajo families make their homes, raise livestock, and farm the lands in the canyon. The National Park Service and Navajo Nation actively work together to manage park resources.

Las Vegas Rain


Las Vegas is in a desert.
Deserts are known for their lack of rain.
Recently I spoke with someone who lives in Vegas
and he said that it rains around 5 days a year.
But, of course, when I visited last year
I just HAPPENED to go when it rained.
That’s the story of my life.

Life in the Desert

Remember when you’re lost in the desert and very thirsty cactuses are the soft-drink of choice. The photograph was made in the desert not far from one of my favorite places, Las Vegas. (I’m not a gambler. I love the lights and the spectacle.)
