It was really nice to visit other DRC crews, and assist with their projects. It is unfortunate that due to heavy winds on this hitch, our white canvas community tent is currently out of commission. We were visited by two very playful stray puppies that were rescued and are currently in need of a good home. Owens Peak Wilderness is wonderful and also has beautiful wildflowers that have already begun to bloom! We got to end our hitch working in a breath-taking beautiful area that had a river flowing through it. The riparian area was like an oasis that attracts a lot of wildlife, especially the birds of all colors, shapes, and sizes that we got the pleasure to watch.
We met an awesome fellow whom lives "off the grid" and he let us camp in his backyard. He lives near a little spring where Cottonwoods and Willows grow, and also with other plants such as Wild Watercress that can be found along the water's edge. Everything about the natural land he lived on was quite peaceful and very much like a hidden gem to stumble across. He was an excellent host and we greatly enjoyed his company (and, Saki, his cat's company too!).
This hitch was a very busy one, and the crew traveled around and worked in many different places on many different projects. We are excited to return to Golden Valley Wilderness to continue working on our fence project. Perhaps our wildflowers will be in bloom as well!
