Thoughts From the Wilderness

20091228-20091228-Ranch_Panorama1 Edit-1

Across the desert regions of the American Southwest there stretches a wilderness still unclenched by the fingers of urban modernity.  A place where you can look for miles and never see another human being.

In the midst of that wilderness is where I spent the last several days, celebrating the Christmas holiday with family who make their home there. It’s a refreshing thing to separate from the trappings of city life and enjoy a bit of quiet, and I’m now convinced that we don’t spend nearly enough time in silence, what with the incessant barrage of noise and television and busyness constantly pressing in on us…

Anyway, sorry I digress. Perhaps we should all take some time this week to get away from the noise of life and find some silence. Until then, enjoy these photos.

The image above is a 360 degree view of “The Ranch” as it is affectionately known, and the images below are from the daily walk around the property.
