It’s Hot Out There!

“August 2012 – Photo taken in the eastern Oregon desert on a drive from Alaska to Florida; an inferior mirage, or the optical illusion of heat waves, is visible.”

Chase Berenson is a 2007 graduate of Vassar College, who, after graduating, moved to Alaska (“which is a magnificent place to live and serves as a great background for writing.”) He then traveled to Europe to participate in The Mongol Rally, which involved driving a comically small 1.1 liter car from England to Mongolia to raise money for charity. After completing the Rally, he moved to Bangkok, Thailand, where he currently lives with his girlfriend. He has previously been published in The Talkeetna Daily Weekend and The Anchorage Press.
