North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California
A cool start to the day but we had errands to run today and so headed off around 9:30 am. First was a garbage run to the rest area, next was Arco for diesel for the Big Dog, next was Harbor Freight, Walmart, gas and water all in the Walmart parking lot, and finally a bust at Ferrell Gas, no longer open to the public. Oh well, we'll get it filled in a day or two elsewhere.
|I love the colouring. |
|Nothing is repetitive. The hills are never uniform, nor the colours. |
|We stopped and parked here for a bit. |
After that it was a very quiet but nice day, not too hot, reached about 73F/23C. A beautiful day. Some helicopters flew by so low their feet were almost dragging in the desert sand but too far away to get a good pic with the phone. I do miss my camera. More pics of the ride with Jerry again. I hope you are enjoying the views. I sure did.
|Those are water tanks over there and supply lines running to them along the hill. |
|We headed down that trail on foot. It was some pretty amazing things to see down there. |
|That's a man made dam over there. Lots of concrete. |
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great day.
|A closer look at the dam. The dark is water leaking through. |
|There is a spigot in the dam side. |
|To relieve pressure if the dam gets too full. |
Until next time....
|Some water behind the dam....|
|See the pipes? They are steel and the holders are secured in the rocks. They go to those first tanks in the pics. |
|They get their water from here. Tomorrow some more of pics of the water way. |
Take care, stay safe,
