    lexalou. . .the folks have done a much better job in recent years marking the road. Much of it is still not paved, however; but it's not the 'mystery into the mystery canyon' road as we used to call it. As far as range cattle goes, yep. . .those slow-moving bovines don't seem to mind the vehicles, though it's not quite the case the other way around. By the way, to you and all the other folks visiting in this part of the country, the sign OPEN RANGE means what is implies. . .open range for livestock. What people don't know, however, is if you hit the animal, you bought it. No kidding. (In Mexico, it's the same thing, except there the owner can charge you for all sorts of extras, such as figuring on offspring it might have had, or some such.) Anyway, I love your apt description about Chaco: eerie, beautiful, mystical. Can't top that. Thanks for posting your comment and fun story.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
