When you think of the desert does never ending sand dunes and scorching temperatures filled with scorpions and rattlesnakes come to mind? The desert is SO much more than that! For starters, desert does not mean flat boring terrain for as far as you can see! The desert is not a hot, flat, barren wasteland; It is filled with so much character and beauty! So let me change your mind about desert life! Read on to learn some of the great things about life in the desert.
Sunshine. Lots of Sunshine!
And Everyone loves sunshine, right? You will get plenty of Vitamin D when you spend time in the desert. 320+ days of sun is nothing to complain about and it means that you can actually make plans that won’t get ruined by bad weather! Imagine that!!!!
Plenty of Outdoor Activities
This is a direct lead in from the sunshine topic. Not only is there a ton to do….. You can do it almost 24/7! Go hiking, biking, hunting and camping year round! If you are an avid outdoors person, you are going to love the desert life. The weather is amazing, along with the scenery, so its the perfect spot to get outside!
No Humidity, Great Air Quality, and a Night Sky that You Have to See to Believe!
If you are from a humid area this statement is like music to your ears! No more rivers of sweat running down your body while you are sitting in the shade! Low humidity also means low allergens like mold, pollen and dust! Because you aren’t in a densely populated area there is virtually NO pollution, just tons of fresh air! Speaking of pollution….. With no light pollution out in the desert you can see the night sky the way it was meant to be seen! FULL of stars, planets, and a moon so bright you wont need a flashlight some nights!
Thank you Low Humidity! Not to mention there are also no sandflies, gnats, no-see-ums etc. You can leave your windows open at night without the risk of being swarmed by annoying bugs! Enjoy a campfire without the smell of Off™ getting in the way of the fresh air. Amazing!
Best. Sunsets. Ever. Seriously, they are unbeatable. The instagram captions are yours for the taking when you snap pictures out here! There I colors I never knew existed until I saw my first desert sunset. Do yourself a favor….. Put that on your bucket list.
Cacus, Rocks and Low Maintenance Properties
Do you know how many different kinds of cactus there are and how easy the are to maintain? I didn’t, but I do now! You can fill your property with cactus that are absolutely stunning, and you don’t have to do a thing! Some varieties of cactus even flower, and they are surprisingly beautiful. No more watering the yard and pulling weeds. Spread among the cactus are plenty of rocks with plenty of personality! Red, brown, grey…. Big and small you’ll find rocks of every kind in the desert. Oh, and of course when you have rocks, you have rock climbing! Bonus!!
Enjoy more free time in the desert and don’t worry about mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, and the other boring chores you have to do in other areas of the country.
Last but Not Least….. Peace & Quiet!
If you are looking to get away from city crowds, traffic, and nosy neighbors, this is the place to do it! You will have all the space you need to be the private person you want to be. There are no crowds out here!
