I could not resist recording this desert plant fighting the 115-degree heat to brighten up this scene near The Grand Staircase Escalante, in Utah. Its strong red color spoke of defiance as it lived each day challenging the forces around its habitat. I am amazed how delicate and vulnerable plants can adapt to survive even in the toughest of conditions. Although deserts seem to be judged by many to be useless waste lands, which are barren of useful life, I have come to realize there is a whole magnificent world which exists only in the desert.
