Maybe I’m biased, but I believe the Southwest is the most distinctive and iconic region in the United States.
For starters, there’s the expansive sky, the rugged mountains, the seemingly endless horizon and the stunning sunsets.
The blooming cacti, the smell of creosote after rain and the chattering of Gambel’s quail. There’s the architecture, so
harmonious with nature. The sunrise, sunset, the ever changing light … the silence.
