A lot of people tend to think that the desert is a barren and lifeless place that is devoid of all beauty, but they are wrong. Sure, the desert is a harsh and dangerous place that could very possibly kill you if you dare challenge it and you are unprepared, but simply by changing your point of view and looking at it in a different angle, you will realize that the desert is not all about death and emptiness and it is, in fact, teeming with beauty and even life.
