Helene, Kam and I watched Holes last night after I returned from a couple days in Carrizo working at the MU Ranch and digging a BIG HOLE at the Hideout (The entire time I was digging, I was remembering that great book and movie).
This new wildlife "guzzler" pond holds 400 gallons of much needed water for all of the wildlife in the Plain. I'm planning on adding some sort of rainwater catchment "roof" which will also provide shade to slow the evaporation rate.
We may need to drill a well someday soon, but I can guarantee I won't be digging that hole with pick and shovel!
Fun to see that the Palo Verde Trees are full of seed pods. The seeds are supposed to be a tasty treat for the birds, squirrels and rodents.
