Literally. I am back in the desert. I never thought I would write that again. Okay, maybe I thought a little bit that I would; I am eyeing a grad school in Arizona, but I didn't think it would be so soon. I loved my time in Washington alot. ALOT. And, I look forward to returning.
I am a very reluctant desert rat, but I enjoyed the drive down. It was beautiful, I stopped and bought cherries from a funky little road side stand in Eastern Washington (if you ever get that chance take it!); drove through a crazy fire zone in Idaho; and as I was coming in to town saw this:
Actually I not only saw that. I saw the lightning strike that started it. Exciting and a little freaky. The picture is a bit fuzzy because I couldn't find the tripod and was fighting to hold the lens steady as I zoomed.
So, what have you all been up to?
