TO FOLLOW ALONG THIS YEAR'S RACE, FOLLOW MADRE’S FRIENDS @SAFARISPECIAL.
To humans, the desert represents so much of who we are and what it means to be alive. It holds the feelings of mysticism, danger, adventure and death, which has been attracted to taming its wild nature as their own. We seek out deep desert oases, spiritual guidance and an attachment to nature that we all crave. Over the years, poets, artists and documentarians have captured this essence and spirit of the desert which has continuously brought back generation upon generation of wanderers… Today that energy can be found in psychoactive anarchistic pop up gatherings of like minds on one side and a mass migration of creatives and like minds moving and flocking to the desert for retreat and to live a life tapped in with nature.
