Back to the Desert

May 04, 2021

Got the crew back together (mostly) for another trip to the desert.

We took it a bit easier than normal, and really spent time enjoying it all. We hiked the canyons, swam in the river, climbed out to the top of the desert and made art camp. I even had time to read three books.

It’s the most beautiful place on Earth.
