No matter where I look in the distance there are mountains. I once had a friend who lives in the northeast say, "yes, but they are so ugly. Nothing is growing on them". How wrong she was. While we don't have trees covering our desert mountains, we have a lush variety of cacti, creosote, and mesquite. In the spring they erupt with flowers on the various cacti native to the area. Never mind all the animals living there. Can you believe we have large deer invisible, but abundant? We also have fox, coyote, mountain lions, raptors and owls. Plus, we have the best weather in the country. I love the desert.
