Our plan for tomorrow is to go home, the first time I can say that since last November. We’re in northern New Mexico, and home is in southern Colorado, so it’s a realistic plan! Kelly and I have been talking about the many beautiful places we’ve been and the great people we’ve spent time with. We’ve been to about a dozen New Mexico State Parks plus an assortment of other spots. We’ve spent quite a modest amount of money. We’ve had decent internet maybe 90% of the time. And we’ve gotten a lot of work done… We both finished books recently.
The past few days we’ve been at Heron Lake State Park, and from here we’ll drive north in the morning. Before this, we spent two weeks at Navajo Lake State Park, some ways west of here and about a thousand feet lower in elevation. I’m huffing and puffing a bit here, at about 7200 feet in elevation. Home will be 8000 feet.
Both these lakes have a lot of natural beauty. Here is the view from our campsite at Navajo Lake, the distant hills golden in the setting sun:
And from the same campground, Kelly took a telephoto picture of distant snow-capped mountains. Some of those have got to be in Colorado.
Heron Lake is also low, with long stretches of rocks to get to the shoreline:
Kelly took a picture of me today, in front of one of the many juniper trees:
This reminded me of some pictures of me at about a year and a half, also in New Mexico:
And here is my newly finished book, already up as an Amazon Kindle ebook and a paperback. Click on the book image to find out more at Amazon.
Would we make a trip like this again? You betcha!
