Desert Love

By: Amanda Markoe

This Spring Break, I was fortunate enough to go on a road trip with two of my dearest friends from Austin. We ventured to the Grand Canyon, with various stops along the way. Having already traveled to the Grand Canyon, I thought I knew what to expect -and I did- for the most part. Yet, what I found was a new love and appreciation for the natural wonders of the desert. I always thought I belonged in the mountains, but this trip made me question that. I fell in love with the sand and the dirt, the strong winds, the hot sun, and the cold nights. Regardless, whether it’s mountains or desert, I will always love the feeling of being small in the vast and open landscape.
