Blood and guts
As I walked into the Bosque yesterday morning, I noticed a number of squashed frogs on the road. Obviously they were killed by truck traffic that managed to get through the mud. The ex-frog in the attached image is difficult to see because the "blood and guts" are being consumed by a swarm of bees. Even more interesting than the frog and bees is the condition of the ground where the tires have compacted this part of the road. In just a few hours the mud is already cracking from the heat of the sun. Off to the side of the tire tracks, there is still plenty of the wet sticky stuff. Move off this compact lane, your are guaranteed to get stuck.
