Imperial Co. Benchmarks 4/13/2020
This hike will have lot of Benchmarks.
Here is the first one. Dixie.
There is the mysterious Plaster City.
It has its own BM.
One of the high points here.
It is not cold but is windy again.
Wind mills are happily spinning.
Wit found fossilized peace pipe.
I found 200 of something.
We are here.
What do you do with five gallons of fossilized invertebrates?
Made it to Juan Bautista de Anza Overlook. Unfortunately the monument changed into giant beehive.
There is a sea with a ship there somewhere.
Next stop is that bump there.
Still some flower patches.
It is flat.
What is this? Desert mushroom?
Finally some bump to climb.
This hike is as exciding like covid-19 social distancing.
Finally back, it is warm, give me some beer.
