Desert Flowers

Excuse the replays here, I was telling a friend about our spring desert flowers and this was the easiest way to get them online for her to see what I was talking about.

Just recently hired on at Edwards AFB. I took the time to take a short jaunt to Inyokern/Ridgecrest/China Lake on the 14th of this month. I am living in Cal City so it was up Nuralia Road to the 14 to Inyokern and across to Ridgecrest. Nice town ya got there.
I grew up on the High Plains of NC Montana. I know about being a transplant. Done it a lot. I think I would like to put you on the blogroll.

Welcome to the high desert.

I see from your profile that you are a model railroader. There is a pretty good train club here in town. A couple of my best friends are avid railroaders. I would love the hobby but cannot afford another hobby (neither time nor money) so I avoid it.

Let me know if you would like information about the club...

It was a real train. I worked for Herzog Contracting on the GPS Ballast trains. But the info would be cool. I managed to spend 3 of 4 winters between Flagstaff and Barstow!
Not much in Cal City.
I was hoping I would get a call from the Navy and get on at China Lake. Being Retired Navy Air and all. I may try a contractor or two. I think I found one today on an internet search. It is a case of being around a more familiar system. And if the Air Force was willing to take on an old A-6 guy....Why not the Navy Civil Service?
