The California desert is an iconic landscape revealing as both a natural phenomenon and a tableau of human endeavor.

We arrive upon this vast land, awed not only by its enduring and persistent character, but also the dynamism and variability of its natural environments. We are dwarfed by the timelessness imbued so gracefully here. This is our earth, at it’s most primitive, unchanging; our human lifespans represented by a thin veneer marking the surface. Yet, with California arguably history’s most successful desert civilization, America’s ambitions are writ large upon this landscape.

This desert confronts us with a paradox. We are drawn by the ancient landscape and the eons described upon it and discover, etched upon it, our current condition.
