The campsite we had been at was at the wrong end of the campground when the summer (hot) winds came to town. Those winds pick up the heavy dust from the roads and area and blast the Castle with them. The second day of that mess, the OFM had had enough. He got the Castle coupled to Sierra and moved camp to the far south end of the campground.

Now we are very near where the line where the dust and rocks start as the vegetation is mostly gone. We still get the winds but the dust is just starting to get picked up.

The OFM got wild the other night and started an oil pastel painting. He worked diligently on it and finally had wasted enough paper to just give up and call it finished. He named it Storm in the Desert.

No matter how much paper is wasted it is still a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Nice painting and having too much fun is a bonus as ell.

  2. To paraphrase a saying I once had that was originally about time, "The paper you enjoy wasting is not wasted paper."

  3. The winds have been nasty these past couple of days. Maybe the little precipitation we received this morning will help keep the dust down.

    I like your painting.

    1. Dust was not a trouble today until about 1500.
