Another great day of exploring around the ranch! First hiked the no name trail that starts by the G&F buildings and saw my first snake of the year by Evans pond (garter). Then I drove up the road and hiked the Pond 3 loop with some offtrail exploring along the pipeline to Ash Creek. Ash Creek was almost completly dry first time I have ever seen it like this! I then stopped by the G&F office and talked with the ranger for awhile and he gave me the location to yet another big Salado artifact spread within the ranch that I had not seen before. I spent about an hour exploring the site before calling it a day and heading home. Wildlife spotted today was - 3 deer, 1 garter snake, 1 roadrunner, 2 pond turtles, lots of quail & hawks and lone bat hanging in the "bat barn".
