The American West: Deserts

While Europe has thousands of years worth of ancient cities and temples, America has its canyons, mountains, forests, and deserts; these are our great wonders. They are the great equalizer in our country; they belong to both rich and poor, serving as a vast communal backyard. They are a testing ground and recreational paradise for generation upon generation of Americans. They can be cruel and unforgiving while simultaneously full of beauty and wonder. At a time when their future is in question it is imperative to understand how important they are to the American population and what a devastating loss it would be to have the purpose altered.
