Desert Scenes

I lived in Utah for 25 years.  I used to love to out into the flat desert and take photos.  I found some random ones I hope you will enjoy.

“The desert, when the sun comes up…I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the Earth began.”
― Tom Hanks

Southwest of Tooele, Utah on a very stormy day.
Abundant cacti.
Oh, the character of the wood of ages.


Bursts as a wave that from the clouds impends, And swell’d with tempests on the ship descends; White are the decks with foam; the winds aloud Howl o’er the masts, and sing through every shroud: Pale, trembling, tir’d, the sailors freeze with fears; And instant death on every wave appears.
