Between the rolling hills, Castle Peaks Road rises up a short steep hill onto a man-made berm overlooking a dry reservoir
The greenery in the dry reservoir suggests that it contained water quite recently. Presumably, this reservoir was built by former ranchers to help water their cattle. The road is looking a bit grown-in here.
