On the trip to South Dakota in June I encountered lots of wind blowing lots of sand, and then lots of rain on the way back.

Seems it is doing pretty well, so I went ape on it.

Yeah, it could be done better, but the gold is bubbling so, no matter how good I do it, it will never pass close inspection. And it really does look okay from a few feet away.
