In the high desert, summer can feel endless with her sizzling sun-drenched days. As much as we complain about summers scorching temperatures in the desert, she produces a dry inviting heat that attracts people from all over the world, to experience her blazing heat that comforts the reptile in us.
We are, hopefully in the last quarter of summer in the Joshua tree region, as we experience sultry summer nights that give us breezy summer winds, and humid, sticky days, which invites all kinds of chirping, buzzing, and clicking exotic bugs. These bugs constantly sing their songs or impolitely chatter in every corner of our homes.
At the Harmony motel, I blissfully enjoy the last of the warm, delightful summer days, the beautiful cool refreshing mornings and the dramatic sunsets, that lead us into summer’s mysterious dark romantic nights( that embraces star strutted skies and unforgettable summer supermoons).
In particular, I enjoy summer’s spectacular lighting shows, that she always shows cases in the evenings, as a backdrop to the desert wilderness picture perfect landscapes, during her awesome desert storms.
The end of summer, signals to us the festivities of the last of summer and the beginning of the fall celebrations. We begin leisurely preparing for these festivities.
