It’s all there

In a single picture, this explains Disappointment Valley these days:

+ A little snow in the shady (north-facing) places.

+ Monochromatic scenery as a wonderfully wet winter fades.

+ One very handsome – and mud-speckled – mustang looking just the slightest bit pudgy. ๐Ÿ™‚

The rockband layer in the background at left is above a canyon through which Disappointment Creek flows. The creek is running. It doesn’t run through Spring Creek Basin – in fact, the arroyos and drainages of the upper, southern part of the herd management area drain into Disappointment Creek – but that riparian corridor benefits a wide variety of other wildlife in the area.

I think the ponies look their shaggiest just before they start shedding, and handsome Mister Maiku is looking very shaggy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mr. Maiku is looking oh so handsome these days! And the Basin…well, it’s looking good too. Can’t wait to see the green that’s coming…and the Desert Plume! ๐Ÿ˜Š
