Alone

It’s very interesting being truly alone.  Not very many places can you be in such a vast area with no one near by.

*Lost in the Night – Alvord Desert // Princeton, Oregon*

While I’ve been to many remote places, the Alvord desert either was, or at least felt like it was, one of the remotest. We set up camp somewhere in the middle of the 7×12 mile wide playa, a remnant of the alkali Alvord Lake which once covered the area.

One thing you’ll notice right away is how big the sky is, and at night it fills with stars beyond belief. Not a light on the horizon to be found.
