After a recent move from Utah to Kentucky I have been missing the desert a lot lately, no space can ever give the same feeling as the desert. Some photos from one of my favorite desert spots I took a few years ago. Handprints in cave and stone building are over 1000 years old.

Please, share what makes you think of home....

I can't put into words my love of the water. I'm emotionally tied to it.

I agree that no place can ever give the feeling of the desert, but can any space ever truly give the feeling of any other space? All are unique and some touch us more than others. I grok the desert as well as other environments, e.g. have a special connection to the ocean too and a deep affinity for my present home environment--rural farmland near a beautiful free-flowing river perfect for rock-hopping when the water is low + swimming holes & waterfalls. Yes, words ARE really insufficient.
