Wow, I can sure see that there are folks from ALL over the place here! Makes for an interesting board and interesting recipes.
I'm in the upper Mojave Desert (Kern County) just at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Near the Ridgecrest area - so no, not quite as tiny as Yermo is, lol. On those occasions when one needs to get out of the desert, there are lakes and rivers only about an hour away. Yay!
Thanks again for the warm welcome, everyone.
