North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California
A coolish morning but the sun shone all day. I didn't wear shorts due to the coldish north wind but I did enjoy a nice walk, noticed a few blooms but otherwise the day was uneventful. The wind while gusty at times was not unbearable but I was happy when I headed home after my walk.
|We left off here. Those pipes feed water from this rock tank to the long steel tanks that look like rail cars. |
|The rocks are extremely smooth, with little dribbles of water here and there. |
|No pebbles or sand on the rocks, just in the little holes. |
Today's photos pick up where yesterday's left off. Jerry and I walked down to the bottom of the ravine and found a few small tanks or indentations in the rocks, but the waterway itself interested me. The rocks were extremely smooth, with little to no sand or debris on them. It was interesting. We could find no evidence of a mine that would require this elaborate set up. Plus it would have been very hard to get the water up to any type of mine, the lines all ran the wrong way. They came down with indications of release, not up with indications of pumps. Screens over the ends of pipes indicate that the water was going into not out of them. Enjoy the walk up the river bed.
|It was easy walking. Jerry is ahead at the curve. |
|It is easy to imagine the water roaring down here, crashing and smashing. |
|There are "lines" in all of the rocks, everywhere you look. Straight and solid. |
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had an excellent day!
|Can you see Jerry way up there? |
|I turned around here, the stones looked pretty big ahead. |
|It was stunning to see the smoothness and the beauty here created by the force of nature. |
Until next time.....
|How can one not find beauty in this? |
|10, 000 gallons of water in these tanks with no apparent purpose for them being here. How can that be? They are full. |
Take care, stay safe,
