Looks good! I heard similar criticisms regarding WS water. That stuff is bad news.

I am taking notes, Duane, for when I model my Burro Canyon. There will be a bit of water from springs up in the mountains, and some green (mesquite trees, grass and reeds) along the water course.

Might as well jump on the bandwagon with Woodie and Vern, both of them recently built Saguaro cactus. They are tough-These as the better ones that I came up with-the others will be quietly discarded. Saguaros are deceptively simple, yet if the proportion, color and texture aint right, they look like the background to Wily Coyote & Roadrunner- not what I was going for. I can see from the photograph that some are a touch too girthy:

It's great to see the Sonoran Desert greening up, Duane! Your scenery is amazing, excellent forced perspective. Is that a steer lounging by the roadbed?

Your bridge really reminded me of this one, the scenery is very similar, minus the saguaros.  It's a different construction all together, but the mood is very similar.
