The Desert by maggiemae

The Desert

That way is the Mojave National Reserve.
Scene while we were driving south from Las Vegas.

Three good things:
1. Learning about the lives of Indians from the 1800's, so far back in time!
2. Arriving at our destination to find its 44 degreesC - that's 111deg F! I had to go for a swim!
3. Photo of our destination coming up.......
Beautiful landscape shot

Lovely colors! They always like to say it's a "dry" heat. Ha, as if it matters when it's that hot!

@grammyn In that sort of heat, my heart goes a lot faster so its good to get into a cooler place!

@seattlite You get a real sense of desert here - how people survive is just mind boggling!
July 13th, 2017  
@mccarth1 It is a dry heat but somehow you still sweat in it. It would be murder if it were humid!

Beautiful layers and tones. My sister lives in Phoenix... I wait until the cooler months to visit her. :) They say that a dry heat helps, but I'm not so sure.

@rosiekerr Phoenix must be like here - Texas is extreme! Another world!

I wonder if this is actually shimmering? Looks as if it might be. A mere 24C here today, warm, yet not too hot to be out and about.
July 13th, 2017  
@s4sayer It was shimmering in the distance, Margo and around here there was a thunderstorm - rather mighty in these surroundings!
July 13th, 2017  
Yes, I understand. When storms happen in this kind of terrain, it feels like the end of civilisation as we know it. Wonderful!
July 13th, 2017  
great layers and colours
July 13th, 2017  
Such a pretty landscape and a great image.
July 13th, 2017  
A great view. Next year we are hoping to take a trip out West so maybe I will see some of this beautiful landscape
July 14th, 2017
