Enjoy this beautiful time lapse video of the American southwest by photographer Tony Rowell. Much of it was filmed in the Sierra Nevada or the high Mojave on the eastern slope of the mountain range — locations that feature in many of my novels. There are even a couple of shots of the Native American petroglyphs near China Lake, which are mentioned in Crosscut. The mountain peak below the streaking meteor is Mt. Whitney.
