This week we traveled to El Centro, California. We were welcomed by the local BLM staff and were shown where we would be working for the week. Our first location was in the Yuha Desert. The first day at this location we did some exploring and observed several geoglyphs in the area that were pretty awesome. During the week we helped with park maintenance by putting up signs to mark the Juan Bautista De Anza National Historic trail that runs through the Yuha Desert. For the rest of the week we were at our other location where we were shown artifacts and archaeological sites in the area by the BLM’s archaeologist. We also did restoration work covering illegal off road tracks and planted creosote. On Friday, we made the long journey back to Phoenix to do blog writing and time sheets.
