Desert Timey Wimey

My wife and I traveled across the Great Basin Desert yesterday.  With the recent snowfall covering everything, the scene was a never ending white relief of peaks and valleys viewed at 75 miles an hour,  Using her Nokia Windows phone as we sped along, my wife called up the GPS Driving utility app “Here”, set it on current location, and switched to the Satellite view.  On scream was a birds eye view of the same desert we were driving through, but in the summertime, The peaks in deep brown, lava flow in black, wadis, rivers and springs in bright green where they flowed along.   Looking out the window we saw the same features, resting in winter white.  It was, with a tip of the hat to Dr Who, ” being at two times in the same place.”  Timey Wimey.
