Desert Vista

Not to be confused with Desert Vista Hospital where I spent an hour the other day meeting some phone-colleagues (people with whom we frequently speak, but rarely, if ever, meet) and having an interesting conversation with a patient about rich porn stars who eat at the homeless shelter so they can avoid the paparazzi….

Looking northeast from the White Tank Mountains on a past October morning…worlds away from the above-mentioned hospital….

  4. Nice . . . no rich porn stars sharing the views with you, were they?

    • Hmm…nosir…it was a sweet solo hike, per usual. πŸ˜‰

    • Yes, they do, Liana…would that be like “seeding” clouds to make them rain? πŸ™‚

  6. Looks glorious. Only hike I have ever taken at the White Tanks is Waterfall Trail, and while I I dated with people, perfect for kids and puppies. Beautiful capture.

  7. Oh those conversations! Made me smile….my most memorable ones were with schizophrenics, but in recent years I had interesting conversations with people with dementia. It exercises your brain to follow those different paths. And then how good it is that we can get away and exercise our spirits in places like the White Tanks. Oh, I love that line-up of clouds!

    • Yes, Lynn…it certainly takes a bit of mental exercise to follow those different paths…and so much more enjoyable when we can then get away and off into the wild places of our own choosing and exercise our spirits.

      I thought the clouds needed their own picture. πŸ™‚

  8. Joe just told me he’s been to the Tanks, and has a friend who works at Desert Vista (he’s a social worker)….you may know him….small world.

    • Yes, it is a small world, Lynn…and I only really “know” two people out at Desert Vista…the nurse practitioners who treat my syphilitic patients! It’s rare that I would even speak with someone out there in another capacity…aside from a receptionist.

      Your Joe probably had a nice time at the White Tanks, too…unless it was a winter Saturday morning when the rest of the world was there to hike the Waterfall Trail…with the rest of the conga-line!
