For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length -and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.” ― Carlos Castaneda

Last weekend we went camping in Anza Borrego Desert at the Agua Caliente campgrounds. When we travel here, it’s like being transported to another world. The fact is, it’s only 1.5 hours from home in Temecula, California.

I’ve always been in awe of the desert. From its rugged landscape, to other-worldly feeling, it is a wonderful place to reconnect, recharge and unplug-being without cell reception was a major bonus.

Many describe the desert as desolate, lonely, bare and infertile. To me, the desert is a magical place. It offers the choice to really slow down (more here), explore the fauna and beauty and just be. One late afternoon, I sat motionless and watched the beauty of afternoon light, dance across the mountain scape into a beautiful show of color. Nature has a way of making me see so much, feel so much.
