Every time we walk in the desert we usually go east or south first then make a big loop – anywhere from 2.75 miles to over four miles. And almost every walk we do there is something new to see but I always forget my camera. So on Saturday, I brought the camera along and here are some of the sites in the desert that keep me wondering.
Balloons on the horizon:
A jar full of sand buried in the middle of nowhere:
Bones, bones, and more bones:
We have come across quite a few bones. In one area they were scattered all over. In another area was a horse. Actually the horse was killed in November and we watched it go from full to bones – Interesting to see but also gruesome.
Some ones balloon:
We haven’t figured out why this was here. Could have been a carport for a house/business or ?? There were a lot of nails sticking out on the top of the pole so something was attached.
Found these guys too – :
Lots of glass:
Shoes?? Actually we find quite a bit of clothing and bedding.
Trash, trash, and more trash (lots of broken glass in there too):
Now this is interesting. It is a small ceramic Siamese cat. There was nothing around it. Was it carried by the water to just this spot??
We came across an area that was full of stuffed animals – whose were they?
More trash – this was roofing material:
Did someone live here for a while???
After all that rain, the desert has grass:
I have a lot more pictures but you get the idea. It is like a treasure hunt every walk – what will we find today?
On Sunday, my cousin, Kris spent the day with us. We had a wonderful time getting caught up, showing her around the park and a great “lupper” at the Native New Yorker Restaurant in town. What a great time and always good to spend some time with her.
Here we are:
Today, Monday, was pack up/shutdown/laundry kind of day. We will be leaving tomorrow for Quartzsite so stay tuned and enjoy today.
