    The Desert Is Beautiful

    I know lots of people who think the desert is ugly and depressing, but I find it to be mysteriously beautiful.  I think I could even live there.  There's something beautiful about looking all around you and seeing nothing but sand and rock...no sign of life or civilization...

    I Love the Desert

    I think the desert is so beautiful because it remains mostly untouched by humans. I love how the bright sky melts into the horizon with the endless baron land.

    Growing Up In the Mojave

    I was nearly 3 when my family moved to California City, which is about a half hour from Edwards AFB. It's a small town of about 10,000 people or so. Some of my earliest memories are of long walks in the desert with my family, when it wasn't too hot. There were dirt roads going...
