When you’re a little more familiar with the California desert, here’s what you’ll be missing from this new photo series

A photo series called Desert Rides has been rolling out across the state of California since October and will now be expanded to cover the entire state in a matter of weeks. 

The project is the brainchild of a local photographer named Veronica Lodge, who decided to do a series about the desert landscape in order to help her and her husband prepare for the next trip. 

“My husband and I have been traveling all over California,” she said in an interview with The Huffington Post. 

She said she decided to put together a series of photos of her husband’s and her daughters’ favorite spots in the desert that they would all visit in a single trip, to hopefully get them used to the desert environment.

“They’re like our little mini-van trips to go out and explore,” she told HuffPost. 

Lodge said she knew there would be some challenges with photographing the desert in a traditional way, but she also knew that the experience was worth it to share with her friends and family. 

After completing the series, she hopes to expand it to include more places to photograph the desert, as well as other areas in the state she’s visited. 

Her photos are part of a larger project she’s been doing on social media, where she posts pictures of her trips. 

To help get people excited about the new photos, she shared some of the photos with HuffPost in a series called My Desert Trip: My Favorite Places in the California Desert.

“It’s been fun to be able to share my journey with the world, to see what the new photography series is like,” she added. 

I have my family in the back of the van with me, we’re traveling in a van.

We’re not going anywhere. 

It’s really a fun time for me, just being able to explore the desert and the amazing people who live there. 

You can find the entire series at Veronica Lodge’s website.
