Bay beauty

Had a welcome sighting of this handsome bay boy:

Poco, sporting his fuzzy winter coat!

While I was taking pix of him, I hiked over to look at the double ponds to check the water status.

Good news!

The pond that was dug out in 2009 has good water! The second double pond – which was not dug out – has no water, but the center is muddy.

Interestingly, some of the ground between the road and the good pond was moist on the surface. Given that we haven’t had any moisture for a couple of weeks (and that, not much), that’s just something to “make ya go hmm.” Most of the ponds do still have water, and as noted in a couple of previous posts, there are some water-producing seeps in arroyos.

Keep dancing. Mother Nature, like BLM, moves at her own pace. 🙂

Water in the pond, what a sight and a welcome one at that. I can’t even remember the last time it rained and the fleeting snow was gone so quickly. I will keep up with the rain/snow dancing!
