Missing the desert.

It could be the foot of snow in my front yard or the fact that I haven't felt warm in months, but I really miss the desert. I miss the dry, blistering heat, the red rocks, and the wild rabbits. When my mind wanders, I always end up back in the hot sun, climbing a dusty trail with lizards and ground squirrels hiding in the scrub brush. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, this new landscape tested my adventurous spirit and I fell in love with it (freezer burned Choco Taco at a Utah State Park notwithstanding). 

So...can this snow melt already?
