Q & A with Gwendolyn Duffy
GD: I’m a bit of a bird nerd and I’ve had some excellent birding adventures in Oregon, Washington, Northern California and Montana. But the first time I went exploring the wilds of the Nevada desert with my husband was the greatest by far! I was blown away by the vast expanse of sky and earth. It felt like a whole new world to me; different plants, animals and life everywhere. Compared to the lush growth of the forests that I am familiar with, there is a resilience to life in the desert. It clings on despite the harsh environment and I was instantly taken with that.
