 Amargosa, The Bitter River

Open range - quiet -  vast horizons of sky.

 Rattlesnake baking in the sun.

In Rhyolite, The Pink Lady

Venus of Nevada, stands as Godiva.

Ghostly Wraiths gather for the feast.

Alkaline Meadows.

Turquiose.

Blue Springs.

Blooms in Desert Gold.

Sacred markers of  Shoshone

lay untouched.

God's country.

The Sawtooth Mountain

Casting Shadows

As Bighorn Battle for a mate.
