The Desert just leaves me in awe - I find myself always longing for it when I leave.
This was taken in the Virgin River Gorge, in Arizona at sunrise.
"The Virgin River Gorge, located between St. George, Utah and Littlefield, Arizona.
Interstate 15 runs through the canyon and crosses the Virgin River several times. The Virgin River Gorge section of Interstate 15 is one of the most expensive parts of interstate highway ever constructed. Due to the winding of the interstate, the canyon is also noted for its tricky driving conditions.
The climate of the canyon is typical of the Mojave Desert with hot summers and mild winters. Flora and Fauna in the canyon are also typical of the Mojave. The canyon is popular among outdoor recreationalists such as rock climbers, hikers, and campers."
