    Smack in the middle of The Plains. Not great photography skills, but a little different.

    Near Karval CO. The drought and wind have led to an incredible amount of sand blowing. You can see the road ditches have blown across much like driting snow. The fence posts are half buried. This was good grassland a few years back. Now looks more like sand dunes. When I was there today, the wind was only blowing about 15mph and I could feel the sand hitting me in the face.

    Dust bowls used to be just something I read about.

    On the bright side, I may soon have dunes close by for riding!

    I was trying to get around that dang GS.




    My buddy thought it would be a good spot to shoot some video...:rofl
    He didn't get that on video but he was johnny on the spot with the camera.
    I caught some nice air on a water break and over cooked the corner, ended up in the little ditch, and there was a log in my path, like the one behind me in the pic you quoted. So hit the log or run up the bank, it sorta worked...:lol3
