Carrizo Plains Exploring April 2013

I had wanted to check out the Carrizo Plains National Monument for awhile now and spring seemed like the best time to go.  It should be green right?  Normaly april would be a great time to go and see green hills and lots of wildflowers, but not this year.  Our last real heavy rain was sometime in november and we’ve only had a few trace amounts since.  You can see from the pics that its been a very dry winter.  In fact when we were out there in late april it was allready getting close to 90deg during the day!  Anyhow, it was good break from yardwork and next time we come we will know a bit more about where to go.  Here are some pics from the trip.
