Re: There's a little water in trails west of poinsette

First pic looks like pump house canal. Headed south. I looked down that way from the lake couple days ago and it looked a whole lot drier then. Rain today might bring it up even more!

I got a 6.0 powerstroke. It's only good because I did away with all the epa crap and fixed all the other stuff. It's been to Alaska twice pulling big loads everytime.
