Hi scottmac,

My wife and I just rode through there last weekend and I was shocked at how much the part you see from Rt 58 and Bitterwater Road had changed since I was last there, about a year ago ...

Big solar farms south of 58 and at the end of Bitterwater Road ... what dyvking says about the NM is true, we didn't really see the farms from Hurricane Ridge or Elkhorne Road ...

The area isn't ruined for me, still big vistas, and the solar farms are not that big [yet], but man ... progress marches on ... pretty quickly, too ...

The strange watch-tower thing at the north end of Bitterwater has started to collapse, also ... near the collapsed old county store ...

oh well,
see you around the campfire,
