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."
