Ground photos and another flight

The first photo shows the sand bank with the wagon tracks going up the face. This is very unusual. It's rare to find a single track let alone a dozen or more. The tracks marked by the green arrows are undisturbed, so considered class 1.The two marked with red arrows are class 2 because of recent ATV use.

The green arrow across the top indicates a swale that runs along the top of the ridge.

The second photo shows a detail of a class 1 swale. It is possible that these swales date from the 1600s - now we have to search for artifacts to prove it.

In the third photo, Powell is easing the Seniorita into a tight landing spot.
