Some like it hot, and dry

We wanted to make a photo with the Book Cliffs as a background. All we needed was a train coming from Green River to make it work. Unfortunately, we only saw traffic coming from the wrong side. But then, fortunately, this train needed some pushing units on the back of the train.
The landscape doesn’t only look very arid, it most definitely was hot and dry here. Some animals, say snakes, like this environment enough to live in though. I discovered this while patiently waiting and reading a book on a rock, when suddenly I became aware of something sneaking up to me. Needless to say that I couldn’t sit at ease on a rock anymore that day 🙂
