Life in the desert is fascinating. People don't realize how much life there is in such an environment...it may be swarthy and tough-as-nails life, but it's incredible nonetheless. There's nothing quite like the rainy season to bring out the best the desert has to offer.
I think the older I get the more the desert calls me. I might be part desert nomad, I feel so at home in the sandstone and hot air. I can manage a lot of different terrains and climates, but I feel most at home in snowy pine forests or scorching sandstone (funny, how different they are).
What terrain do you feel most comfortable in?
