the best rocks around.

almost forgot about this doodle from back in june. consider it a highly belated eskpedition celebration.

while I have your attention... the sense of vastness and timelessness associated with the southwest can be a little misleading for just how fragile many of its components are. From biological soil crusts to Joshua trees to (a favourite of mine) desert varnish, deserts work on desert time, and, when destroyed, these natural phenomena can take anywhere from a few precious years to a millennia to reform-- if they come back at all. It pays to make like a funky little plant ghost out there and leave no trace x^)
