California - Nevada - La, la, la, la, la, la

"I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la,  la, la, la, la.
After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red."

I don't often listen to music during my runs, but for some reason this tune by America popped into my head & would not leave. So I pulled out my phone (also usually not with me) and used that intermittent bar of connection to intermittently play the song on YouTube 4 times consecutively - before jumping to Old Crow Medicine Show's version of Wagon Wheel.

The desert was dry and full of rocks & things. I watched my step for rattlers that might be taking advantage of the warm spring sunshine to warm their bodies.
