|Our campsite in the morning.|
|We start the day
with an exercise in desert plants. A few line transects later and we
establish that we are camping out amidst creosote, yucca and a lot of other
small stuff. We might not remember the plants, but know how to use the field
guides, and that's a start!
Jason and Beth go AWOL for a few hours on a hour long hike. Jason claims that the lizards led them astray...
We spend the afternoon in a semi- ghost town a few miles east, which turns out to be a major tourist trap. Two saloons, plenty of antique stores and a gold mine as scenic backdrop. Oh, yes, plenty of tourists too.
