A visitor on an off road vehicle left these tracks on the off edge of our driveway. They did not see the tiny desert lupine struggling to keep a toehold here. A couple of its leaves were broken, but it is coming back. The wind storm yesterday did nothing to erase these tracks. Maybe next week I'll come out with my Chinese broom and sweep the record from the desert floor. We'll also have to think of a way to delineate the areas humans are safe to leave their mark without harming the gentle desert. In the meantime we hope this loud and little flag will serve to warn the humans that something is living here.
