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 ...
see you around the campfire,
That really sucks.
Riding down there from the north on Bitterwater is part of the whole experience IMO.
Nothing to see but empty rolling hills,cows and the sporadic ranch buildings.
That's what makes Carrizo feel so remote. Pulling up to Soda Lake road and seeing a
Mcdonalds is just plain wrong.
