Before and after the “Potemkin sprinkler village” at Palomino Valley

BLM Sprinkler July 1 2013 Med Meme
“The phrase Potemkin villages (an alternative spelling is Potyomkin villages, derived from the Russian: Потёмкинские деревни, Potyomkinskiye derevni) was originally used to describe a fake village, built only to impress. The phrase is now used, typically in politics and economics, to describe any construction (literal or figurative) built solely to deceive others into thinking that some situation is better than it really is. It is unclear whether the origin of the phrase is factual, an exaggeration, or a myth.” ~ Wikipedia need ‎#Shade4Mustangs Please SHAREA special shout out to Taylor James who has gone out to document the native wild horses during the heatwave.
