Photo of the Day: 5.1.20

After leaving the Gila National Forest, we traveled about 200 miles northeast to a small RV Park just north of the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.  The retired couple who were camped next to us in Las Cienegas NCA mentioned they volunteer at…

Photo of the Day 4.7.20

It was “chore” day today.  The wind and sunshine were perfect drying conditions!!  Truth be told, I am also trying out my new remote shutter release cable hoping to get a full moon shot tonight – and the clothes drying on the line are…

Photo of the Day 4.3.20

Back to a ranch land photograph today!  This morning, we retraced our bike ride from several days ago -getting an earlier start since the winds were supposed to kick up during the afternoon hours.  We had a very good reason for riding the same…

2 Days, 2 Parks – Guadalupe NP

Part 2 of our travels through Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe area: We moved to the Pine Springs Campground in Guadalupe National Park after our long day in Carlsbad Caverns.  This was not by choice (that’s another story!) but it ended up being extremely convenient…

2 Days, 2 Parks

When Jim and I explored the southwest during the winter of 2017, we bypassed Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe National Parks twice!  On both occasions, the weather forecast called for cold temperatures (sub-freezing) and high winds.  As we headed west this winter, I kept tracking…

What’s in a name and other musings….

From our travels  through Arkansas and Oklahoma several days ago ….. We passed an uneventful night at a nice rest area just east of Forrest City, Arkansas.  The truck parking area was full so we opted to park horizontally across several spaces near a…
