High Desert Driving.........

2009.09.03
pixel
I said, "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be
at rest - I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would
hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.
--Psalms 55:6
pixel
Only the desert has a fascination—to ride alone—in the sun in the
forever unpossessed country—away from man. That is a great
temptation.
--D.H. Lawrence
pixel
Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest awhile.
--Mark 6:31
pixel
To say nothing is out here is incorrect; to say the desert is stingy
with everything except space and light, stone and earth is closer to
the truth.
--William Least Heat Moon
pixel
What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate
in the remote.
--Edward Abbey
pixel
The other desert -- the real desert -- is not for the eyes of the
superficial observer or the fearful soul of the cynic. It is a land
which reveals its true character only to those who come with
courage, tolerance, and understanding. For those the desert holds
rare gifts.
--Randall Henderson
pixel
A desert is a place without expectation.
--Nadine Gordimer
pixel
Transparent and intangible as sunlight, yet always and everywhere
present, [the desert] lures a man on and on, from the red-walled
canyons to the smoke-blue ranges beyond, in a futile but fascinating
quest for the great, unimaginable treasure which the desert seems to
promise. Once caught by this golden lure you become a prospector for
life.
--Edward Abbey

tbranscum Love #4 and #8! Nice to see but I don't think I would like to live there. I would miss my hills of Kentucky. Funny how mosst people love where they are raised. There is no place like home. :)
