D is for Desert

 My Theme for the A to Z Challenge: Desert Canyon Living

The Mojave Desert is home to the California desert tortoise, the Mojave rattlesnake, the burros let loose here in the late 1800s, many other animals, and also our military. The Mojave Desert is a place of astonishing beauty, it has many secrets, it is magnificent, spiritual and vast. 

You can find many unexpected things here: Wind turbines in the desert mountains,

an airplane graveyard, where thousands of planes sit and wait, for what I'm not sure. 

You may find an old abandoned truck with plants growing in the engine compartment, 

surrounded by Joshua trees and surprising greenery.

A lizard may appear in front of you 

on a road that leads to who knows where…….

Note: My regular features: Sunday Morning Reflections, Tuesday's Treasures, Wednesday's Book, and Samson Says will not appear until May. (Samson Says: Good, I need a break, Mommy. Hope Gracie won't forget me and go back to that Max dog!)
