The desert to many is vast, empty and dangerous.  I however get excited at opportunities to enter and traverse it.  These vast areas can be relatively unscathed by human hand and filled with natural beauty.  I however like to look for the leftover remnants left by people as if Rey from Star Wars.

I feel amazed by the stories the leftovers tell.  In particular of abandonment.  I find it unbelievable how places can flourish then disapear almost overnight.  I love how the desert preserves.  I love how the remnants are from a bygone era filled with optimism, now left decaying.  I love the Americana Googie style iconic of so many things.

Here are a few images from many archeological hunts across tho Mojave
