A desert

While discussing an upcoming vacation with someone I know, we talked over the various possible camping destinations in California and nearby. I went off-roading on the Mojave Road last year and discussed the desert with them.

Then, I happened across this photo on the web:


Q: Where do you think this photo is from?

A: Mars. (source)

I thought it was fascinating that the picture looks just like a desert you might see in southern california, Nevada, or Utah.

I can’t wait to see the first photo taken with a smartphone by a human stepping foot on the red planet. Imagine receiving a text message from another planet with a selfie in the desert of Mars, or from the top of Olympus Mons.
