When your soul wants to go to the desert, say yes. I came south yesterday for a little sun, biking, and plein air painting. Southern Utah has gotten a lot of snow this winter and I am surprised by how much. All the high elevations are still covered in snow, ponds and reservoirs are full of water, and growing season is in full swing at lower elevations. The desert continues to amaze me and each year I see a new aspect of it and grow to love it even more.
