One of the things I love about living in the desert are the vistas.
Being able to see a long way unobstructed by trees or buildings calms my soul.
I see this all the time as I travel up and down Racetrack Road on errands or to the other treatment plant I work at.
It's about 15 miles away as the crow flies from where I was shooting.
Looking North at Frenchman's Peak
See how the rocks are striated straight up and down? The bedrock has been raised up on end from plates in the Earth's crust colliding.
The rock here is about three BILLION years old! It's part of a geologic formation called the "Great Non-Conformity" and is part of the same rock formation that is at the base of the Grand Canyon.
Kinda puts my day in perspective.
