"Deserted." The desert is not so much an escape from L.A. as it is a return. We pilgrimage to Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, Twentynine Palms, Landers, Borrego Springs, the Mojave, the Great Basin and the Sonoran to bask in the feeling of renewal. These photos accompanied poetry by Sara Borjas, Elaine Kahn and Christine Larusso.
