Back to work, y'all! After an action-packed 3 months off, I'm back to my seasonal gig as a Wildlife Tech. This week we camped out in the West Desert for a week looking for frog eggs.
The West Desert is a weird place. It's part of the Basin and Range Province and made up of rows of mountains, vast valleys, and salt-covered basins. Honestly, I'm definitely more of a Colorado Plateau snob -- red rock cliffs are pretty hard to beat -- but there are some pretty spots in the West Desert. At the right time of day, the grey bleakness has its own kind of subtle beauty. Tack on a couple of natural warm springs and you're in business! Not a bad way to get back to responsible adulthood.
