One thing about the High Desert is, the Lava Rock! Hiking can take a toll on your boots, and if you bring your dog with you your dogs feet when having to hike over the Lava Rock which is spread out all over the area! Feel free to download a free watermarked sample of this image to see what the unwatermarked purchased image will look like before making that choice! I do photography full time and have thousands of images I am getting up on this computer as time permits. Contact me with any questions you may have at my website. Thank you for looking!
