After our morning hike we hit the road on our bikes. There are plenty of dirt roads and 4X4 trails in the area and we headed southeast to check out Cottonwood Wash. From the top of the mountains you see this area as a large green patch contrasted among the more desolate desert landscape. Intermittent streams running through these washes during wetter times of the year allow much different vegetation to grow, including Cottonwood trees and other tall-growing plants that have little in common to the ground-hugging, parched vegetation that occupies most of the greater valley.
Current Thoughts…It's amazing what speaks to certain people and what doesn't. In general I think this site's content has been fair this year, but not great. Though I know some people read it, I also think it's not often worth commenting on. Still, just because an article might not get comments doesn't mean it isn't necessarily good. I always wanted to be a published writer and now I am. It's a good thing technology makes it easy and cheap to do it yourself these days. If this was my career I'd be broke and living in a cardboard box on the street. There is a reason I never "made it." Enjoy what you can folks. Some of it is good stuff.
