We have a lot of washes here in the Southwest, they are dry most of the time, but when it rains they can flood! And like most desserts we have a lot of sand! The boys like to play in the wash, but only on sunny days! Oh, there is also LOTS of sagebrush around here!
This is one of many hills around our place, we do a lot of hiking on them, very dry here in NM!
The children have spent hours running around up here playing and filming mini movies.
WAY out in the distance you can see a couple of natural gas refineries. Most of the industry in this area revolves around oil and gas.
