August 2008 at the Ranch

Summer Rain
August 9th, 2008.
2008 has been another good monsoon season. We are several inches ahead on our rainfall for the summer. Here, we are arriving at Markham Pass Gate right at the end of a pretty good shower. You can see Markham Wash running pretty good.

The road improvements of last winter improved the road quite a bit, as the ruts were only a couple of inches deep. We did get stuck pretty bad once we got to our own driveway, but we didn’t get any pictures of the attempts to free ourselves. Anyway, it’s nice and green at the ranch again (for a while).

Muddy Day
08 August 2008.
Just to explain the lack of progress on this trip, we arrived in the middle of a summer thunderstorm that had dumped quite a bit of rain on the ranch.

We made it through Markham Mudpit OK, and all the way to our driveway. That’s when things went horribly wrong.
