Yet there the nightingale...

...filled all the desert with inviolable voice,
And still she cried, and still the world pursued...

A long stretch of the Bradshaw Trail through the Sonoran Desert in Riverside County, California follows closely along the border of the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range, where live bombing exercises are conducted. The bombing range is well marked (in both English and Spanish, for this area is close to the Mexican border), but one has to wonder if the bombs lying along the side of the trail were left there by the military as curiosities for travelers, or mistakes that missed their target.

And yes, the quote is once again from T. S. Elliot's The Wasteland. :)

Nothing after the jump.
