The World Where We Stand

Lately my head has been in the heavens with the moon, the stars, distant planets and streaming meteors. A couple of weeks ago, I was persuaded to re-visit Kelso Dunes where my focus is very often closer and much, much lower. It took me a while to find my way.
At first, I was visually disappointed. Yeah, yeah, big dune; fewer sinuous curves and more grassy sprouts. I’d rather visit Panamint Dunes or even Mesquite. But Vaughn and I walked out a ways in the wintry morning light and there it was - the appeal of Kelso Dunes.
It’s the grass. All twists and arches and ribbons. What fun!
