[edit] Expeditions

A nice expedition into a VERY dusty area. Used 4 wheel drive to get through the silt and kicked up a huge dust cloud. Treked over packed silt flood berms, through a dense thicket of pre-tumbleweeds (as in still growing), and through a mini-forest of Tamarisk trees to get to the final location.

On the way out, we sidetracked to the edge of the Santa Cruz River and saw a couple heron enjoying the area. We also stopped to look at a couple old abandon farm buildings. One looked like a nice fixer-upper until we saw the large cracks in the north wall. Must have been a nice place in its day. RoadRunner was already figuring where the outdoor fountain would go.
