I will never forget the desert country. The moon is never more beautiful than out on the desert. Most times when I stopped at Coaldale Junction, Nevada, a miner was sitting in the cafe. Those old timers are great fun to talk to. They weren’t in the desert for the gold, they were attracted by the opportunity and the chance to make just enough to get by. Bib overalls, rolling their own cigarettes or using a little snuff. The fascination of the desert is what ties them up, the same desert so many others have walked or driven over. They have their share of bad luck but always come back, simply unable to resist the call of the desert.
