Many people who have never been to the desert, assume that it is dry, parched, hot, and devoid of life. I live in the 'high desert' of New Mexico, and I can tell you, it is vibrant, enchanting, and bursting with life! Most of these photos were taken in late Summer, early fall. Enjoy!

**If you click on each photo, I have included captions to the right.**
