Black Belt Mud


Ahh, what with all the wet, dismal weather, I am stuck in the mud for want of lovely, sunshiny photos!

Anyhow, this is what Black Belt mud looks like...sticky, dark clay. This particular mud is a pasture road, and you had better be driving a 4x4 if you expect to get out!

This dirt is officially known as Blackland Prairie soil, which gives the Black Belt its name.

Lots of wet clay. You better not mind getting dirty if you travel far on those ruts. You have to scrape off that kind of dirty. Pappy

Yuk! Slushy and splippery - not a place for me to ride my bike for sure! Oh how different our world's are at present.

Looks like you could get well and truly stuck in that, even in a 4x4!

Looks like a perfect field for a game of mudball.
