When one thinks of the deserts of Nevada, usually their head is filled with flat scenery covered in dry, drab rock. The sun beating overhead; scavengers from both the land and sky fight over whatever morsels they come across; the world seems more like a scene from Mad Max than from one in our current civilization. But right on the border of Nevada and California, right outside of Death Valley, the hottest place in the world, lies an oasis. A few thousand acres filled with biodiversity that will make one pause. This wonderland known as Ash Meadows Wildlife Refuge, offers a glimpse into a world like none other.
