Raven's Reverie

Coxcomb Mountains, Joshua Tree National Park

Mojave and Colorado (Sonoran) Desert ridges and mountain ranges recede into the distance in early morning light.

"Range after range of desert mountains stretched as far as we could see: the Palens, the Granites, the Little Marias,
the Big Marias. Like an undulating carpet of chocolate-brown velvet, they stretched to the vanishing point."
Louise Werner, Desert Magazine, May 1953. Photo © copyright by Michael E. Gordon.
