Views from the Field: Humboldt River Basin

I've been out in the field on a fairly routine basis recently, taking pictures mostly of rocks and my hammer (for scale). Occasionally I take a photo or two looking off into the distance, or of other non-work items (like lizards) that I come across.

This photo looks more or less southwest across the southern part of the Humboldt Range, with the green, irrigated fields of the lower Humboldt River basin a few miles below Rye Patch Reservoir and just above the Humboldt Sink in view off in the distance. Location of the Humboldt Sink linked below.

The interesting shape of the juniper wood is what really caught my attention!
