The true desest areas include are -parts- of Arizona, Californa, Colorado, maybe New Mexico, maybe Utah, maybe some of Texas--but vast areas of those states not only are not deserts, there are area of freshwater lakes and mountains covered in snow for substantial parts of the year.   Most of the plains states areas get too much rain to be desert, even though some parts of the plains don't generally get -lots- of rain in a year...

True, but many places in the US are close to desert. Kehei gets like 12.6 inches per year, and Los Angeles about 15.

That which is emptiness is form.
