The Mohave Desert

Still hanging around in this area of California. The Mohave Desert has cast some sort of spell over me. I can’t get enough of the place for some strange reason, it’s arid and barren with some unusual plants and cacti including the Joshua Tree, it’s hot and dusty yet strangely beautiful.

This vast desert which straddles 3 states, namely, California, Arizona and Nevada has a bewitching effect on many who travel through it. Travellers pitch tents, build shacks and homes in odd places, leave personal objects, mainly old trainers and shoes or names spelt out with stones seemingly to prove they been there.
