Kentmere © Andrew LeaneyWe collected our UK visitor from Las Vegas airport then drove north through the desert. We told our visitor how rain in the earlier part of the year had produced a green sheen on the surface of the usually arid brown landscape. We sat out in the evening sunshine saying how unusually green were the nearby hills. Later we went online to show some of the web sites that depict the landscapes back in the UK. Finding an alternative to describing the desert as green has clearly become an urgent necessity: less brown, perhaps.
