Mojave Desert, Solitude 7/10/10

July 14, 2010

On the way home from Yosemite National Park, we took US 395 to 14, going through Mojave Desert. After the last light from the sunset, it became a total darkness. I had to fight against a big nature force. Of course, we couldn’t see anything, we couldn’t touch anything, we were just in a big space between mountains. I was feared by un-seen nature, as if the darkness was pushing me to the edge of the earth. There were only a few cars going by. No life around. Jack rabbits and desert mice crossed the road quietly. I saw some lights in the distance once in a while. Complete solitude away from everything. Beautiful stars every night, gorgeous sunset every day, snow and rain. Solitude, and solitude.
