Broken Dreams And What It Takes To Survive In The Mojave Desert

While exploring I came upon more than a few sad and abandoned dreams in one form or another.

My last camping adventure before returning to San Francisco for the summer took me to the Mojave Desert in June.  Temperatures reached about 105 degrees.   I spent the days exploring in my car so I could run the ac and cool off a bit between stops.

As you can see by my camp site, shade is non existent.

 

While exploring I came upon more than a few sad and abandoned dreams in one form or another.

 

Which left me wondering how does one survive in the Mojave Desert?  Of course, nature has done a much better job.

 

But humans aren’t inclined to give up.  And even though small things seems to thrive in California’s Mojave Desert, big things seem to be sprouting about 5 miles from the camp site.

 

What do you think they are planning to grow? Bigger question is where do you think the water will come from?  Is this another broken dream in the making, or is Mojave Desert heading for big changes?  Time will tell.
