it was good to see the red rock against blue skies, and to feel the sun through a mildly cool breeze.
there was a little climbing, a little hiking, and a lot of eating.
more photos to come after i present a paper to my class tomorrow afternoon. very. very. nervous.
i keep trying to think of the desert to calm my nerves.
my presentation will be over tomorrow, but the desert will always be waiting for me. thank goodness.
