This is what it looked like last year after it dried out and got dozer'd.

If you find it passable on the plains of San Agustin, south of hwy 12, watch for this lady rancher. Made my day.

Far off in the distance there is where the aliens landed in 1947.
The VLA (very large array) radio telescope is over there too on hwy 60 about 30 miles from Pietown.
Good to know, I did not have internet last night so missed this info. Ended up going to Reflex for gas and then back. The roads were great and fast, really burned them up .... until Hwy 150....HOLY $$%$$##@@
Still have to do my final day's ride report then I'll expand on this a bit.
