Desert destruction begins in Ocotillo

by Administrator 16. May 2012 18:08

Jim Pelley of Ocotillo graciously supplied these photos of the first day of the Ocotillo Express Wind Farm construction.

Pattern's Earth Moving equipment has already caused substantial damage to the fragile desert outside of Ocotillo.

Crushed Ocotillo plant. Ocotillo plants can live 60 years and there have been reported cases of 100 year old Ocotillo. Unfortunately this one had its' life cut short by Pattern's Earth Moving equipment.

Another crushed Ocotillo plant.

Good chance this dormant Ocotillo in the foreground won't be standing much longer

Ocotillo Express

My favorite part about this picture is the BLM Limited use sign on the left of the screen. Guess Pattern can tear that down too.
