Except for the power line, this is what the desert may have looked like that Jesus went to after his baptism by John in the Jordan. This scene is just up the mountain from the Jordan River. The temptations get all the attention, but surely Jesus didn't go there to be tempted. In the desert he could be totally alone with God in preparation for his life's work.
We can create our own desert during Lent, a place and a time, where we can be alone with God.
