It was a warm sunny afternoon after two weeks of drenching rain, mudslides and power outages. Fred stopped by and we headed out on the Rino ATV to survey the mother of all slides – Nelson Road. After about 30 minutes of dirt and paved roads we reached the slide. If the slide were not cool enough what we found directly at it’s epicenter was even more startling.
Alpacas. The rock slide, about 100 yards wide ran right up to the back fence of their farm yard. Fred learned the owners bought them as a business venture but had to sell them after the slide. The owners said the Alpacas were timidly by nature and liked to use their long yellow tongues to spit at each other.
Checking out the huge rock slide and the Alpaca encounter made for a pretty fun afternoon adventure.
