No obvious signs of injury, but maybe it was the other side that was injured. I was thinking it was illegally poached, but I couldn't find any bullet holes. Of course a small .22 shot would be hard to find, but I didn't see any blood...

Reminds me of a time quite a few years ago, when a buddy and I were travelling through Tule Canyon, NV (SW of Gold Point), each in our individule trucks.  We stopped at the old Rachford stage station building so he could see it.  He opened the door for his dog, a large breed, and without warning and in a split second, he bolted off like lightning and within a few yards of the door attacked something in the sage.  A thick dust cloud inveloped the dog and whatever he was attacking, but it became clear that he had another animal by the neck and was shaking it for all it was worth.  By the time the guy was able to stop his dog, we found that he found a red fox and attacked it.  The fox obviously had a broken neck - he/she could not move its body, but would occasionally move its head slightly, obviously struggling.  Had to put it out of its misery.  It was springtime.  I hope it wasn't a female with a litter of pups waiting for her nearby.

      Here's an abandoned mining operation I explored called gold pen and bovard mining districts.

      So this is a really common area if you are from here and like to look at old buildings.  We spent the day up there a few weeks back and decided to get some footage. This was 3 of 3 where i lost a good portion of the footage. I ended going up just last week to add the drone footage. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this very common place from a different perspective.

      I have never been to Burning Man and truthfully, the clothing optional aspects of it intimidate the hell out of me.  The artwork and designs of the temporary structures fascinate my aesthetic imagination, therefore, it was to my delight that some of the smaller artwork from the 2016 Burning Man is displayed at Reno Playa Art Park.

      Short little video of an explore I made a few weeks ago. I've been meaning to post this for some time but was overcome by a lot of RL events with work & stuff. But I am starting a series of videos on the Oregon Trail as it came through Boise, and one of those videos includes the tiny town of Mayfield, Idaho. I read about it in a newspaper and saw that there is going to be a concerted effort to develop the area around the old town site and figured I should collect some images while I could. I found a really cool region close to my home that I knew nothing about, so I may go out there again for more videos.
      Anyhow, here's a link for the interested and I'll try to pick up the pace and do more than one video a month!
