    The line on the hill here and on the first picture and this one is a not a road but a fault line ~ happened about 60 years ~ some places the ground rose over 20'

    The flowers are outstanding ~ IMG_20190608_160335.jpg IMG_20190608_160430.jpg not in the photos for some reason ```

    Wasn't Icthyosaurus a swimming dinosaur?
    I am thinking this bc your goldfish can get "Ich" and die from it.

    Yes, I'm believing when the earthquake fault allowed the water that was here to rush south the grand canyon was created in a few days ~ the Colorado River didn't make the canyon the canyon directed the river ~ just like what happened at Mount Saint Helen ~ but more water and so a deeper canyon ```

    this is the approach to Badwater Death Valley ~ the valley is so expansive ~ flash floods come through here and change the shape of the land ~ in a few years a new valley can be cut ~ we drove down a valley with a paved road that wasn't here a few years ago ~ if I fine the pictures I'll post them ```

    This cow was at a hotel ~ Longstreet I think was the name ~ has a old time saloon ~ full of locals ~ good food ~ don't think I got a shot of that ~ took these with my phone, can't do it well ~ pictures are all over the place when I moved them to the computer ```

    From way up ~ I'm guessing 5000 feet above Badwater ``` IMG_20190512_082434.jpg IMG_20190512_082442.jpg IMG_20190512_082539.jpg IMG_20190512_091623.jpg

    here's a paved road leading in the Wash where I'm standing is prone to flash floods ~ in you're here when on comes you go where it takes you ~ it can be sunny and hot here and rain higher up ~ and that's it ``` IMG_20190512_083440.jpg

    this is why up there ~ pictures are out of order ```

    Yerani is working as a mechanic now bebuilding heads,,trouble shooting installing engines ~ and she won''t ask me how to do something, I'm a journeyman ~ she put a tranny in sisters car and a fuel pump in my truck ~ I made out I was having trouble ~ she came and trimmed the tanks filler hose so it could be raised into place ~ well ~ that's another story ```



    It'll be maybe 120degrees down there ~ but sometimes feels good ``` IMG_20190512_082607.jpg IMG_20190512_092319.jpg

    these are supposed to be tailings from a mining operation ```

    It's pretty warm ~ it was after 10 AM ~ we had water ~ these is the salt flat at Badwater ~ if you walk out far enough ~ there is water ~ the saltiest water you can imagine ```
