Late Rain

This town is full of the most amazing people. Open-ness and eye contact. The desert history section of the library is extensive, with many books written by individual homesteaders and dreamers who headed here in the early to mid 1900s to "prove up" 160 acre parcels of land. Actually, this was a program of the US Gov't until 1977! All you had to do was improve the land and the 160 acres would be yours! Dreamiest!

Paper bag bush is in bloom! Lets walk through this low scrub and notice the subtle colors. The desert tortoise uses this plant as a home.
