A little more than a century ago an Arkansas farmer named John Wesley Huddleston spotted two “round pebbles with fiery eyes that blazed up at him” from the gravel of his barnyard where he was feeding his hogs.

But here and there along the 26 miles south to Keystone Gallery,... Read more »

That impression – of uninhabitable expanses that required 100 gallons of water to drive across – stayed with me until I experienced the desert for myself.  As RVers, we seek variety in our camping spots. My wife, Monique,... Read more »
