I love living surrounded by green. But I look forward to a desert escape every year.
So Mikey and I planned to spend a week camping in Moab, Utah, a favorite of ours among the beautiful red cliffs and lonely, long trails. But as the last week of October approached, we regularly checked chilly weather forecasts and started considering other options. We considered driving farther from home to stay warm in southern California or even Sedona, Ariz.
We both slept poorly in the weeks leading up to Halloween and opted to visit a desert a bit closer to home and drove the short way to Sisters, Ore.
