With the sun blazing down from a cloudless sky, one would think nothing could survive in the harsh desert. But many organisms actually thrive--from scorpions and rattlesnakes to beetles and spiders. It's not the easiest life on the baking earth, but it's so fascinating to visit the desert--one small square at a time. Full color.
