... the night before, as I was on a bender at Route 36. Too scared to have a proper sleep on the bus as I truly thought that I might **** myself, my only blessing was that the seat next to me was vacant.

It's extremely dry yes, but the scenery is extraordinary. Snow capped volcanoes that tower over mineral lakes. The volcanoes extract the minerals from the earth's core and when they erupted spewing out lava (and minerals), the minerals remained. ...
