Why I Return to Desert Magic...

"Desert magic - a vibration subtly communicated in warm earth colors through clean, bright air and wide open spaces. This magic is elusive, a simple silent message too complicated for words, but quietly revealed by every rugged landscape, every hardy plant. Clear light shines everywhere, pigments of dawn and day and dusk coloring a cloudless sky, an airy dome of desert light.
...We come to this place to share in its peace, to listen to its stories, to glory at its beauty. Whenever we leave, the desert beckons us back with tantalizing freedom."

Stephen Trimble
from "Joshua Tree, Desert Reflections" JTNPA, 1979
