My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Septic / Road / Dam
The septic is finished and A.G. had to have a place to dump all the rubble from the dig since it was almost totally huge rocks. Normally he digs a big hole dumps the debris in it and covers it with dirt. That didn't work for this place because its all rock. I've been entertaining the idea of a damn in the wash out back of this property so I asked him if he would just dump it in the wash to make a damn. He was kind enough to do it so now I have a dam back there. Will be interesting to see if it works. If it works the pond won't be real deep and I think the rocks are too big to wash out so maybe it will hold up. Of course it may have the same fate as JW's damn though? I guess time will tell. The road you see in the above picture was graded out by A.G. to allow the dump truck to get back there. (Another bonus from the septic system.)
The road goes from the front of the property to the back and the firing range will be moved to the south to put it out of the pond area.
And a couple of other pictures for the heck of it. Sage bush blooming and looking out at the rain/wind storm the other night. You can barely make out a very low rainbow in the last picture.
