Tonight Julie and I drove to Pioneertown, CA for dinner at Pappy and Harriet’s. We came here last spring and wanted to come back and gorge ourselves on meat. Then we drove back to our rental as the sun was setting, and I snapped photos from the car. I love the desert so much- the colors, the emptiness and expanse, the quietness- I feel at home here in so many ways. Everything looks like something out of a movie- the signs all boast “Oasis” and “Paradise,” and the wind dramatically whips the non-native palm trees around. I feel sun satiated and happy.
