Humid Trip Produces Some Color

With high humidity and soaring temps, boulder dash and I decided go do some desert prospecting July 3rd & 4th.

The plan was to drywash, but things were way to wet for that. So, lots of hiking & sweating was on the menu for this trip. During this time however, we found a lot of neat things like old claim markers, many digs, a burro trail, strange beetles, and we even wound up with a little gold. :brows:

Very neatly stacked claim markers..

There was a lot of wild life out in that humidity. I saw a cougar,(mountain lion) an owl, many buzzards, a green racer snake, rabbits, and a dog that kept following me around because we gave it water. Yes Fred that was Adams fine writing skills in the Icmj.

Errrr... eat one? Those bugs are pretty and all but I'd rather dig out a granola bar.
