My husband forgot his phone so we had to turn back even though we’d already gone through 3 gates. There was no complaining or cussing, though, for when we headed back out our second time, we were greeted with the resplendent gift of the sky. It was as if we were in a dream of chiaroschuro; of lightplay and shadow. The whole world glimmered with Nevada’s silver and gold and we saw with new eyes the wonder and beauty and power of this country.
