Soda Lake ~ Carrizo Plain

Soda Lake ~ March 21st, 2013

Road trips are unexpected journeys, not unlike the recent movie “The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey.” And much like the aforementioned movie, this road trip was a bit disappointing.

We had banked on seeing some wildflowers as this tends to be the season. But I’m fairly certain the wildflowers are undergoing another dismal year; therefore, we will have to resort to stock footage to see an abundance of contrasty – saturated flower pics.

So we moved on – on to Soda Lake, located within the Carrizo Plain National Monument. For Heather, I believe this only continued the disappointment. Soda Lake is arid – which is to say, it’s basically a desert (although it’s classified as a grassland). Within this grassland live 13 different endangered species, including the kangaroo rat and the kit fox. You’ll also find the largest photovoltaic array in the world = solar power.

Fortunately for Heather, and for me by association

 

– we did eventually intercept HWY 168 – which is going off right now with some real grassland action.

We finished with a gluttonous meal at Rooster Creek…which was nice. A good day – an unexpected journey – a reminder to get out.
