where the robbers used to roost

Since we moved to Ridgecrest in November, I’ve had moments where I miss friends and family in an empty “what am I doing here” way. And then I’ve had moments like this, taking in the desert’s beauty with A. and C. — endless land and sky and quiet — and I exhale and think, “Wow. This is what I’m doing here.”

(This is at Robber’s Roost, off of 14, about 15 minutes from our home, and it was where robbers used to hide out and scan for stagecoaches carrying gold and other minerals in the 19th century.)

  1. I love places like that where it is so easy to picture the history of it. I can almost see a stagecoach in that first photo!
