I feel most at home when visiting the Wild West.
In the West, tall tales are told in layers of intense and pale colors.
Odd-looking plants stand tall, like characters in a children’s picture book.
You may find ancient hidden stories exposed by wind and water.
When you visit the Wild West, look for cloudbursts highlighting the mood of mountains.
Notice arid landscapes cracking and folding, longing for the moisture on distant snow-topped peaks.
Admire towering sentries from a distance, knowing they guard reserves of water with tough skins and sharp spines.
