A lot of people who stay in California have the wrong idea about the Mojave Desert and think that it's a rough waste, but in fact it is a very fascinating landscape.

This desert has a very vulnerable environment with a lot of exotic plants and animals. The landscape is a bit monotonous but does vary from waving sunddunes till rocks which are shaped by erosion. Especially in the springtime this desert blossoms exuberantly. Some of the vegetation only exists in the Mojave Desert. This desert also lodges a very large variety of (not always visible) fauna, like purcupines, deers, coyotes and foxes.

The Mojave Desert (Mojave is used for the desert while Mohave is used for the native people) occupies a significant portion of southern California and smaller parts of southwestern Utah, southern Nevada, and northwestern Arizona, in the United States.
