Some pics from a few days ago...


Our Location: 

North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California


Errands in Yuma where the focus, Harbor Freight, 99cent store, Walmart, and propane. The U-Haul where we normally get propane and the Chevron at Pilot Knob are the same price, $3.99. Home and finished putting away the groceries by 1:30. The wind started picking up and making it kind of dusty to be outside and a wind advisory in effect tomorrow as well. Chatted with my dad later in the day, surprise, surprise the Rock is getting a lot of wind too. Wind seems to be the constant word in most conversations. 

Those looked like smoke from farther away.....

Palo Verde trees that are dying....

all along this wash.

They are still very stiff and pointy needles.

Deep in the wash, lots of debris.

They are fast and blend well.

The pattern is eye catching. You can see the direction of the flow from the caught up debris.

Waves in the desert.

Paper thin layers.

Still some pretty blooms, some not open yet too.


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the pics. 


Until next time...


Take care, stay safe, 





  1. Is your lizard a chuckwalla? That's the only one I can think of that is that big. In the old western books they were good eating.
    Let us know if the wind highlights the sand trails in the washes or obliterates them. Wind an biblical rains at the beach today. :(

    1. I have no idea about the lizard, it was fast and panting when it was blending with the wood. I think I'll leave it for you to do a taste test. LOL


  2. Wow. That lizard...yikes. It's windy today in Wellton. I don't think the neighbors will go riding today. Take care!

    1. It was running from me and hiding, doing a good job. It's very windy and the rain has kept us inside all day.
