A Mess(y)ier Marathon.

The weekend started out with a bang.  A jolt actually.  We felt the eathquake out here (barely), but it wasn’t enough to stop our intrepid Marathoner’s.


The clouds, however, did stop us.


So, as darkness fell, I decided to take some photos anyway.    Children playing in the dark, nothing seems to phase them.







It is the time of the year when the desert blooms and this year was actually pretty good with the rain we received.


A group of students came out to explore our site.  I hope they can come back when it is clear!  Next month we have a Girl Scout troop and two different high school field trips!  Lots of activity.


Even with little hope of a break in the clouds, people set up and tested equipment.  Sometimes a cloudy night can be very productive.
