“The finest quality of this stone, these plants and animals, this desert landscape is the indifference manifest to our presence, our absence, our coming, our staying or our going. Whether we live or die is a matter of absolutely no concern whatsoever to the desert.”

Edward Abbey – Desert Solitaire

“It seems to me that the strangeness and wonder of existence are emphasized here, in the desert, by the comparative sparsity of the flora and fauna: life not crowded upon life as in other places but scattered abroad in spareness and simplicity, with a generous gift of space for each herb and bush and tree, each stem of grass, so that the living organism stands out bold and brave and vivid against the lifeless sand and barren rock. The extreme clarity of the desert light is equaled by the extreme individuation of desert life-forms.”

Incredible Hand Crack

IHC is perfect hands, perfect 5.10 on laser cut desert sandstone in a movie set landscape of rattle snakes, turkeys, bats and dust devils. A landscape where you can see to the horizon and almost feel like you could see beyond.
