This is as close as I dared to park at the "shoreline" for where you see the dark bands means wetness underneath. Also being close to the bushes encourages Sinbad to wander off among them. Out in the middle of the playa he stays close to the motor home. The dry lake is around 8 or 9 miles across to the other side at this point although it does not look that far.
One afternoon he walked with me for about 50 yards and then all of a sudden, for no reason but for the sheer pleasure of running, he bolted, running as fast as he could back to the motor home. I had never seen him run so fast for so far before. It was a joy to see for as you remember, only a few weeks earlier he was very sick from those thyroid pills.
Being close to "shore" affords me the opportunity to go for a walkabout
just to see what there is to see or find.
There wasn't much at this location.
