Before the holidays -- and our trip to spend Christmas in SLC -- Jim and I scouted out a hiking trail in Yuma's Muggins Mountains "for later." "Later" was yesterday. Then today we hiked a trail near the Yuma Proving Ground that followed an irrigation canal. Both hikes were flat but yesterday's trail had sections of deep sand, which made it a little tough for our dog, Cooper. He seemed happy to stay home today.

|Yesterday's trail was flat but covered with either deep sand |
or lots of rocks. These are some of the rocks we saw. Carl,
if you are reading this, what is your geologic opinion?
