They Cannot Scare Me

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars – on stars where no human race is.
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.

—–Robert Frost

Wild burros wander around the edges of town. There are many springs plus the Amargosa River that provide water to the area.

The first church in Beatty was an Episcopal church. It’s now the VFW hall.
