Re: 2017 Playa Conditions

We're headed there for Easter. If anyone local want to join us, c'mon up! We had a nice little party. A couple of people have told me the playa is "breathing" and I'll believe it. Water IN/water OUT. It's a giant evap pond and now that much of the water from surrounding mountains has (hopefully) be...

Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

This is one I made for JustJoe last year. I only needed an outer cage for the bucket cooler due to the small radius of the 'tube'. Joe can tell us if it sagged over the week. If it did, just add the inner cage. It worked GREAT. I thought it would get moopy, but held up just fine. Thanks Elder Geek!

I heard last week that it's receded quite a bit with blowing dust is visible at times. Our weather station recorded .21" of rain over the weekend, so that may have changed.

Re: 2017 Playa Conditions

Thanks guys. In my short history (eight burns), there has never been this much water on the playa. Not even close. My understanding is that in the olden days, the Quinn River, which drains to the northern end near Black Rock Point, would inundate the playa every year. Recent agricultural needs have ...

Re: Playa Rocks

Thanks for all of the input. They look similar to a tufa "flower" that I have. When I put the UV light on it and it fluoresces, but is *much* dimmer that the specimens picked up on top of playa. They react biggly with HCL. I'm going to go with Tufa Meteorite. Yeah, I was hoping Rhino would chime in....

Playa Rocks

While playing with a cheapie uv flashlight, I found some little rocks on the playa during the event this year that fluoresce.
Anybody have an idea of what they are?
