Lunar Landscape?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 June 2019 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

View outside my airplane window as we were descending into Las Vegas, Nevada. I was intrigued by the unusual landscape that appeared lunar to me.

Photo captured July 22, 2016.

Is it naturally that way or is it a result of logging/ overuse?

@The Yum List: Natural. It's like a desert landscape there.
