On Google Maps I zoomed in on the land around us and discovered a muddy reservoir. Now I knew where the animals around here including those two cows I saw got their water. I would go check it out. I also wanted to see what that strange anomaly at the left edge center of the photo was.
Huh! It turned out to be a spillway;
a spillway that appeared to not have seen any water in a very long time.
And when it did it was only at the bottom of the photo.
With that mystery solved I set out in search for a way to the muddy reservoir. This wasn’t too difficult for I picked up a animal trail and followed it through the thick brush. Animals always choose the easiest route to go anywhere.
Well if I thought this was disappointing imagine the poor animals coming here to drink and finding no water, just a dry dark bed of baked mud. And here it is the first week of April.
This place will not see any water until a half a year from now, if even then.
