    Night nav in the desert is far more bearable than deep forest night nav. I used to live out in that area.

    Thanks for sharing the pics!

    There are many different types of desert. There is a beauty found in the high desert that can be felt easier than described with mere words. Photos don't do justice to the area.

    Pretty much looks like MT, WY, CO, NM east of the Rockies. A whole lot of nothing. Oh and cactus.
