The air shimmies like boiling jello, the sun falls sharp. The rocks have a tired glint. This valley can give you altitude sickness at the bottom, and it just goes up from here. We draw closer to space and more tumbling radiation. Even the sky grows darker, and that thin firmament before the great blackness, thinner. Its wind is cold despite all the mirage. Plains slope steeply and mountains loom, their snows are high as clouds, remote as water. There are deserts and there are deserts. There are some mineral places where a bare planet can be sensed. It stretches onward, not a sprig, a spine or a blade to suggest life. The craving comes as you struggle for scale. Some vague fear lies in vastness. Its corollary is a promise. Then one guanaco. An astronaut. Such a creature might break the desolation. But maybe he just makes it complete. .

We are in the Altiplano of Chile and Bolivia searching for the carancho cordillerano - the mountain caracara - one of a group of falcons renowned for resilience and intelligence. They can be found all over South America, but not always as expected. If the birds can survive a place like this, maybe they have other secrets.

Un desierto es lo que tú crees que es. Y ahora, puedes pensar con claridad. Allí no había mentiras. Todas las fantasías se desvanecían. Eso era lo que ocurría en todos los desiertos. Sólo estabas tú, y aquello en lo que creías. ¿Qué es lo que he creído siempre?
Que en conjunto, y básicamente, si un hombre vivía como era debido, no según lo que dijera cualquier sacerdote, sino según lo que parecía honesto y decente dentro, entonces al final, más o menos, todo saldría bien.
No podías poner eso en un estandarte. Pero el desierto ya no parecía tan terrible.

@thetacticalnomad's @dmr_llc Comp Rifle chambered in 6.5mm Creedmoor. This was our pre-SHOT Show marathon build that we completed in one day. We started on a Sunday AM and Monday we were burning up rounds. The barreled action is the sister to my Comp Rifle, both guns use 24" Bartlein SS 5R match barrels, @ultimatumprecision U300 short action receivers, @deadairsilencers Key Mount muzzle brakes and @trigger.tech 1-3.5 lb. triggers. We're also running the same sight height so when using the same ammunition our DOPE should be interchangeable. 😎 #dmrllc #dmr #lasvegas #custom #rifle builder #sincity #precision #vegas #local #longrange #outdoors #desert #shooting
