Desert Magic

They say there are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.

I agree. For it has taken quite some time to reach this place: the Red Centre.

And there is magic in the desert. It radiates from the sprawling rust-colored sands and endless blue sky.

And the dancing flames of the campfire at night.

As bits of burning ash swirl upward to meet the twinkling Milky Way — unspoiled by light pollution — a true natural wonder is revealed. The stars are as I have never seen them before.*

 

* Since I could not capture my experience with anything other than my senses, I have linked to a spectacular YouTube video to try and share the magic.
