Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
As scorching heat is swallowed by a twilight pink sky, hungry bats awaken and emerge on nimble wings, a restless predator rises to prowl, and stars grow bright. At dawn, the powdery sand is moist with dew, holding the scuttling imprints of tiny insects that scurried in the night. A tarantula hawk flits about on transparent red wings. A dragonfly hovers, beckoning you to a stream’s edge where water splashes, sprays, and tumbles, reflecting the lilting dance of your soul . . . awakened by the desert.
