For the final installment of 7 Deserts, a video series from The African Attachment that follows ultrarunner Mina Guli as she runs 40 marathons across seven deserts on seven continents in seven weeks, we travel to the Mojave Desert in California. The desert is located in the wilderness between Los Angeles and Las Vegas and the environment bears the mark of human influence. As Christy Smith says in this video, our natural resources “provide life to us, and if we destroy them, we destroy ourselves.” You can follow The African Attachment on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
