something for desert?
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
That Eagles' song has been riffling through my brain over the last day or so, now we've found a large map of the deserts west of L.A.
It was on a road trip that I discovered the album cover for Hotel California is the Beverley Hills Hotel in Hollywood. Although in my mind I transfer it's geography to Furnace Creek in Death Valley.
And now I'm thinking it's time to hit another dusty road.
I checked with the airline yesterday and have decided to drop into the middle of Arizona.
But not for a few more days.
