Desertscape: Rock formations (6 images to enjoy)

I have a draw to rocks and rock formations as much as the sky,clouds, water, trees or flowers. Much like the why’s re the attraction to the sky or a river, I can’t clearly explain the draw. The interest in rock formations varies with size, angles and lines, scale, shapes and colors. Whether it is shelter, respite from the wind, the sun, a vantage point or high ground, it attracts.

In Joshua Tree NP, the rock formations were most often a draw to the rock climbers. Being one that may get part way up, my problem is getting down…so I don’t venture to far up a rock pile, let alone a vertical face.

Anyway, the contrast of rock formations in a desertscape is  always fascinating. Maybe you have that same interest as well.

    Again, another beautiful post! I even love to collect small rocks with special looks (to me). So I’ve brought about 20 small rocks with me from Sri Lanka.🙂

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
