Dusk on some valley backroad through the #MojaveDesert. #JoshuaTree, #Creosote and #MojaveYucca surrounded by #Blackbrush.

The Desert Begins with #Creosote "Most species have well-defined areas of growth, the best index the voiceless land can give the traveler of his whereabouts. If you have any doubt about it, know that the desert begins with the creosote. This immortal shrub spreads down into Death Valley and up to the lower timberline, odorous and medicinal as you might guess from the name, wandlike, with shining fretted foliage." -From The Land of Little Rain by #MaryHunterAustin, 1903

I love Mary Hunter Austin's book, #TheLandofLittleRain. It reads like a love letter to the desert. Maybe that's just me because I'M in love with this Mojave Desert and it rolls along, playing like a movie in my mind as I read.

I'm in the process of making a love letter to the Mojave myself, a book of my own desert photographs. Realistically, it probably won't be released until 2019.

Bodhi, 8 months old today. The best little dog 🖤
