Clinging to bare rock, junipers like this one can live over 600 years in the
harsh desert environment. Even that is not long enough to see a significant
change in the landscape unless humans invade. I previously photographed this
scene 35 years
earlier. It is encouraging to see how little visible change has occurred.
