The deserts of West Texas often get dismissed as an endless abyss of dirt and gravel. A wasteland where even the smallest amount of life struggles to survive. The vast Chihuahuan Desert stretches past the horizon without a bit of shade accompanied by an unforgiving sun daring anyone brave enough to face its burning rays to come explore its depths. However those that do are rewarded with unique treasures that few are able to enjoy.

I came upon it by chance, seeing a headline on a blog about the highest point in Texas, Guadalupe Point. Never one to turn down a spontaneous adventure, I set off to get lost in the forests of sage.
