This is a desert

of red rock, 

like petrified sand dunes.

Imagining how the Mars rover Curiosity might feel like, wheeling its way towards the distant mountain….

There’s life on this red planet though. Like these miniature moss forests.

And there’s water.

Here one can watch primordial scenes of green 

crawling out of the ocean and once again patiently beginning the colonization of land.

And there are petroglyphs

left by some earlier, ancient explorers.

We also briefly ran into some

sort of a two-legged giant. And local civilization seemed to be lurking

just around the corner too.
