I'm in the process of heading 250 miles west by south west to ~40 acres of sage, juniper, and pinon at 7000', with about 14" of natural h2o if we're lucky. Zone 6a. The soil is very young and fragile. According to the geologic map, it is composed of gravel and alluvium from the pinedale and bull-lake age. There is a pretty good layer of caliche about 12"-18" down.
