Desert Rats

I had initially imagined that the desert in the southwest would consist of giant sand dunes with Saguaro cacti, thirty feet tall, sticking out of the top.  So you can imagine my surprise when, as a volunteer for the American Conservation Experience, I spent ten days tramping through the desert and discovered it was anything […]
