High Noon in the High Desert

High Noon in the High Desert

When we visited Bodie, it was in the middle of the day; it was hot; there was no shade; we were thirsty.  The high desert is a dry, and to many, a barren place.  I wouldn’t say that – instead, I would say it is a spare land with a spare beauty.  It isn’t lush and verdant, but it is aromatic and clean – the light is clean, the air is clean, and it shimmers and dances with subtleties.  You just have to look.
