The Trail Ahead 45 x 20

Almost totally hidden by the desert plant life, we see the only trail leading us home in the distance on right hand side if this photograph. Although peaceful at present, without a way back to more pleasant locations, this desert would offer a challenge to the hardiest of travellers. It is fall and soon the bright colors will fade, and winter will set in for a short period. This location will be almost deserted for the winter, with the exception on a few deer and visiting birds. But it is during this time that the moisture which will sustain life next year will fall and be absorbed by the plants which can store it up for the heat and dry of the coming summer.
