Photographer's Note

My wife and I were driving through Nevada, and I said to her, "I thought Nevada would be desolate and barren, but this is really beautiful scenery!" She replied, "Only YOU would think that, David!" Ah well, perhaps so.

The plants that are so prevalent here are a variety of sagebrush, and this plant, more than perhaps any other, defines the West in the U.S. Much of this land--even here--was more grass than sagebrush once, but overgrazing from cattle and sheep destroyed the grass and the sagebrush took its place. This may be sad, or not, but I sure love the smell of sagebrush, especially after a rain.
