Extremes of a Year’s Journeys

The Road Below, Father Crowley Overlook, Panamint Valley, Death Valley National Park, California, United States of America
The road leads down
A scabrous red cut
Into a valley of death

The azure sky
Suspended upon its downy bed
Of purest white

Extremes of a year’s journeys
Found in a single switchback descent
Just ahead of a desert sunset

Somehow, I find
All of it

The Road Ahead
